Welcome to stitch number 80 at Sunday Stitch School. Today we turn to Mary Thomas and her trusty Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches where I found Corded Bar.
There are two kinds, one used for Cut Work and Drawn Work. Then the stitch is usually known as Overcast Bar or Twisted Bar.
Mattia gave me the French names: Bride Surjetée or Bride Double
la semaine dernière c'était le "point de couronne".
We, however, are going to use it free form as an isolated stitch on Aida, linen, plain weave, felt, velvet or any other fabric of your choice.
First you make a bar of Straight Stitch (Satin Stitch) in a set of six, close together.
Then you whip the six strands together without biting the fabric.
In free form you can of course make the stitches longer or shorter, thicker or thinner. Just change the number of stitches in the foundation bar, it doesn't have to be six.
