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!

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

    1. 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...
