Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 40 - Du Vos Stitch

Another Sunday and another stitch is upon us at Sunday Stitch School.

Do you remember I pleaded for help and asked for information about the '?-Stitch'?
Thank you so much for the feedback.

It is a good linear stitch and will be needed for the next Sunbonnet Sue (next week's lesson).

As no one has given me a name I will nick-name this stitch Du Vos Stitch in honour of the teacher who taught my friend. I think that name is better than Staggered Back Stitch, which is the only other name I could think of.

Work it like this:

On my Aida sampler:

You are free to do whatever you like with this stitch, but please NO more poetry!

Even if I thought I knew a different name, I like your naming. Stick with it!

j'ai trouvé :
- le point de tige = stem stitch
- le point de tige contrarié = outline stitch
Ils se font tous les deux de gauche à droite
Mais est-ce là la différence ?
j'ai vu ça :
qui ressemble à votre point d'aujourd'hui

For those who don't read French, here is a translation:
I found :
- the stem point = stem stitch
- the stem point upset = outline stitch
They are both made from left to right
But is that the difference?
I saw that :
which resembles your point today

I will!

Hi Mattia,
Thank you for the French names and the link.
I will have to write up a blog post of the three stitches, Stem, Outline and Du Vos to show the difference.
Watch this spot.

I have used this stitch but I just assumed it was stem stitch.

Queeniepatch said...

So you actually stitched it like a staggered Back Stitch?
Did you learn it in school?

Another useful stitch.
And another Sunbonnet Sue coming up!

Looks like a right handed regular back stitch to me.

Queeniepatch said...

Sue is already designed, but of course not stitched yet. Soon, though!

Queeniepatch said...

But it isn't!
