Madeira Leaf Stitch Border

This very beautiful old Spanish pattern makes a charming border indeed, but may be carried on more than once to repeat the horizontal leaf motif up through the entire fabric. For a single repeat, simply go through Rows 1-49 once; to continue the pattern upward, omit the first 4 rows and the last 5 rows and proceed with the pattern rows.

Multiple of 10 sts plus 4.
