How gorgeous is this stitch? When I came across it in my favourite stitch book I knew I had to give it a go and I can’t wait to use it in my next design coming very soon!
Its an incredibly stable stitch but surprisingly has lots of drape so that makes it a prime candidate for so many projects from blankets to shawls and scarves. I think it would even look nice as a border around a table runner.
Keep on scrollin’ for written and photo tutorial on how to do this wonderful stitch.
