Comment

Offsetting the rows gives this stitch a diagonal appearance.

Work a row of running stitches. A second row is worked filling in the spaces of the first row. Go into the same holes beside the first thread. Do not split the thread. Subsequent rows start one or two threads lower resulting in a diagonal appearance.
