Diagonal Brick/Byzantine Variation/Condensed Byzantine

This versatile stitch works well for almost everything!

It's a diagonal stitch, but the overall effect is non-directional.  It can be done over two or more diagonal intersections in one, two or more colors.

I've used it for bells, toys, clothing, furniture, architectural features, animals, plants, and even fur on Santa's coat.
