The Cashmere Stitch, also known as Condensed Cashmere Stitch, is a kind of Half-cross Stitch and is supposed to represent the texture of cashmere material.

To work, proceed diagonally, and take first one stitch across one thread, and then two stitches across two threads of the canvas. Larger stitches may be used if desired, but the same proportion must be preserved throughout. The cashmere stitch may be worked from the left to the right or from the right to the left.
