Uwagake chidori kagari

In this unique version of a herringbone, you stitch under and around all previous rows. This technique is seen on the inside points of this simple 16 division temari:

Work from the outside of the design towards the center to create this topsy turvy motif. You place the "under and around" portion of the herringbone at the outside points.

The inside points are stitched a bit differently. Instead of stitching under and around ALL previous rows, stitch under and around only a selected number. In the photo below, you stitch under and around only one row. There are other variations of the same technique.
