Welcome to Sunday Stitch School.
Do you remember Lesson 15's Open Chain Stitch? It is a stitch with MANY names.
When I searched for a stitch beginning with R I found Renaissance Stitch in A-Z of Embroidery Stitches 2. A nice stitch, it looks complicated but was easy to stitch.
While checking if it had any other names I found in Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches a Renaissance Stitch which is TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
This week we focus on the A-Z2 version.
Work it like this:
Of course you can make it shorter, wider and with longer anchoring stitches at the sides.
Fill a square with yellow Renaissance Stitches
and if there is time, do something creative!
No Swedish name has been found. In French it is known as Point de Rococo
