A filet stitch is a cross stitch using a single strand. I contacted the
publisher who put me in touch with the creator. I have completed two
Eagle Scout badges for my sons and now have to complete one for my grandson. I
still have one grandson to go who just made tenderfoot

I have the same eagle scout pattern. Where it says to use a filet stitch I'm just using a half cross stitch with gives the background a more subtle red than what's on the main design. Congratulations on your son's achievement. Mine is for a grandson.

Thanks to all you gals who know what "filet stitch" means in counted cross stitching. I, too, are stitching a project for my Eagle Scout Grandson. I was worried about the red border and now I know it won't be nearly as predominant using only one strand of floss.
