A counted thread stitch. Yugoslavian border  stitch - click to enlarge

A row of small upright evenly spaced stitches are worked and then joined by diagonal stitches. As a single row it can be used for a border but it can also be used as a filling stitch when rows are placed above each other in straight lines. When the slanting stitches are from bottom right to top left it is known as barrier or fence stitch and when from bottom left to top right it is known as Bosnian stitch or Yugoslavian border stitch. Also known as zigzag Holbein stitch.
