61 Raised Fishbone Stitch
As it is a raised stitch it gives a plump look, good for 3D embroidery and, if worked in a straight line, filling in any space. It can be used both to make thick leaves or a nice rope like braid.
62 Pearl Stitch
Not difficult at all to make a nice knotted line with this knobby stitch.
A great advantage is that the knots are not really knots, so reverse stitching is not a knotty problem.
63 French Knotted Chain Stitch
The marriage between the Chain Stitch and the French Knot must be celebrated!
Just remember to use a hoop, then it is easy to make, and will look good in a straight line or on a curve.
64 Madam Totsuka's Tasselled Chain
Here is a fiddly stitch that grows on you - the more you make, the easier it gets and the more you like them.
You can keep them as they are, or cut open the loops.
65 Rosette Stitch Rose
One can never have too many floral stitches. This will make a nice bud, the centre of any flower or indeed a rose. Also, as has been pointed out, they can look like coffee beans or balls of knitting yarn. So, both useful and easy.
Use the five stitches on this Sunbonnet Sue design.
Cheat by using crayon and molding mat.
