Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 53: Sword Edging Stitch

I don't know if this is an 'antique' stitch with any history, but the name, Sword, makes me think it is old. Who fights with a sword these days? Occasionally the Japanese maffia, yes, but in wars? With all the focus on robots, drones and self-driving vehicles, we will soon have wars where people fight with remote controls..... Horrid past, horrid future. Let's not fight!

With this easy stitch there will not even be any fighting between the needle and the fabric!

Work the Sword Edging Stitch like this:








Easy and quick. It makes a nice individual stitch.

Homework:
Add a few stitches to the SSS Reference Chart.
Fill a row on the Aida Sampler.
Do something creative on the orange scribble cloth.


French name: Point d'épée
Swedish name: Svärdstygn

  2. I am interested in what you do with this! I visited a castle and saw swords today, but nothing to do with stitching.

    1. Japanese swords are beautiful, but I don't like what they are supposed to be used for!

  4. Again, another “new to me” stitch! I googled it, and one of the first in the list was Rachel’s blog.
    Interesting stitch, I look forward to seeing how you use it.

    1. I have often seen people wondering what the name of this stitch is. As it looks like a cross it is easy to think it is a Cross stitch!

  5. I first found this stitch in a past TAST post. It is a very useful stitch, which I didn't think it would be.

    1. I didn't know it was a TAST stitch! I have found it used in 2010's version of TAST; I missed it as I first took part in 2012.

  6. I'm looking forward to see how you use this stitch, which is not so inspirational for me. I only used it in TAST.

    1. I was first told by Carorose about it being a TAST stitch. It was used before I joined in TAST so I missed it. What a pity!

  7. I agree with your sentiments.
    And soon we'll see how you're going to use this stitch, a border, as a filler or in combination?
    Happy Monday!

  8. I tried this in TAST 2012. It is an easy one to do and I'm certain you'll come up with a good design on a homework sampler.
