The headgear of a bride, or of a Regent?
Well, here at Sunday Stitch School we are focusing on a stitch called Crown Stitch. I found it in Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches.
The French name is: point de couronne
It is easy!
Make three stitches from the same hole, the middle one longer than the two on the flank. The result is an arrow pointing upwards.
A bit above, and to the left of this arrow, take the needle out.
Pass underneath the three stitches without picking up any of the fabric.
Of course, you can enrich the crown with any amount of beads, pearls or ornamental stitches.
