The origin of this beautiful stitch seems to be a mystery. The original designers are believed to be a mother and daughter from Bavaria. Although they never wrote out a pattern, many have attempted to preserve its beauty by writing instructions without any knowledge of its history. This perfect 2 round stitch allows any color combination to work together in harmony because of its unique textured color overlap. Jenny King felt it was time to share the technique with the rest of the world and has written clear detailed step-by-step instructions - transforming the original square into rectangles, triangle and circles, along with 8 wonderful designs.
