Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 79: Crown Stitch

Another wedding?
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.

 Above, and to the right, insert the needle. Tighten the thread.

 Here is your crown. Easy peasy!

Of course, you can enrich the crown with any amount of beads, pearls or ornamental stitches.

The worms want a Crown!

Yes, I can see how that crown could be added to and embellished to become
quite magnificent.
Good stitching Queenie.

I agree with Janie.

A perfect marriage of stitches if added to a worm.

Very pretty. I will try this one out soon.

Rachel said...

Yes, and turned the other way it could be tussocks of grass!

This is such a pretty stitch and very easy. I learned it in one of Sharon's classes.
