Parisian Stitch and Parisian Variations

Parisian Stitches are composed of long and short alternating vertical stitches. In the double versions which are often known as Old Florentine stitches, pairs of the two stitch lengths alternate.  The stitch can be used as a solid filling, or to make textured stripes, rows and bands.
