A stitch with a cretan structure has similarities with a basic cretan stitch: alternate diagonal stitches cross each other and on the reverse of the fabric straight stitches are worked at a right angle to the direction of travel.

Cretan structure has similarities with herringbone structure: the difference is that the straight stitches on the reverse for herringbone are worked in the opposite direction to the direction of travel, rather than at a right angle.
