Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 9: Interlaced Running Stitch

Sunday Stitch School offers an easy stitch today - Interlaced Running Stitch.
I found it in The Embroidery Stitch Bible.

My Swedish embroidery books describe the stitch rather than name it: Trädning genom två rader efterstygn or Snärjning av dubbla rader efterstygn.
Mattia has supplied the French name: double point de devant entrelacé ou double point de mirliton

You simply make two rows of parallel Running Stitches

Then lace them with another, contrasting if you like, thread that does not go through the fabric.

 When you have reached the end of the row, you have the option of returning in the same way.


On Aida it looks like this:

Homework:
Play around with different threads.
Make more columns of Running Stitches, or make them closer or further apart.
Lace the Running Stitches in creative ways.
Have fun!

So many variations with this stitch. It is often overlooked because it is based on running stitch.

Nice stitch. running stitches didn't fail to add beauty to the embroidery. Though it is simple it gives a unique look.

Nice one. I like the return stitching.

You are right, it is an ignored stitch, but has potential to create fantastic designs.

Queeniepatch said...

Good to hear they enjoyed the quilts.

I think it can be used in many ways.

I will play with it and see how different it can look.

Looking forward to this stitch. last time I worked running stitch sampler for TAST didn't work this. this would be good opportunity to do so.

Such a nice stitch, I learned it when I was about 8 years. I hope to have time to experiment with this stitch.

I am planning to play around with this stitch!

I don't think I had got any further than to the simple Running Stitch when I was that age. I will take my revenge now!

Bonjour, j'ai été absente, je mets à jour le nom des points en français,
- 7 - gate st. : point de porte (impossible de trouver des informations, je continue mes recherches)
- 8 - heavy chain st. : point de chainette serré ou pt de chainette cordé
- 9 - interlaced running st. : double point de devant entrelacé ou double point de mirliton

I remember the stitch from an earlier TAST. I'll play with the stitch today.

Queeniepatch said...

I hope you will enjoy the lessons and maybe try a few of the stitches yourself.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you for always supplying me with the translations. I will update when I have more time - right now very busy...

Oh, I didn't know it was a TAST stitch. I don't think I did it in my TAST course. Or am I getting so forgetful...
