The tied herringbone stitch is a variation of the herringbone stitch, and is worked in two passes with two colors or weights of thread.
The first pass is a band of regular herringbone stitches worked in the first color.
In the second pass, the intersecting stitches made in the first pass are "tied" or tacked in place using a straight stitch.
