Another stitch common to Mountmellick embroidery is the Cable Plait Stitch (aka Braid Stitch).
As always, Needle n' Thread has a great video tutorial for this stitch.
I drew two lines to help guide my stitching and practiced with two types of floss.
DMC floss on the left and #5 pearl cotton on the right.
I really like this stitch. It isn't too difficult to learn and I think it has great texture.
In my whitework project this week, I used part of this pattern I found on Pinterest.
The leaves are pearl cotton and everything else is stitched with DMC floss.
