Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 150: Celestial Eyelet Stitch

To celebrate that we have reached a milestone - stitch #150, here is a very beautiful starry stitch - the heavenly Celestial Eyelet Stitch.

I found it at Arts and Design.

It is easy and charming.

Work it like this:

Use Straight Stitch to make a cross

with four arms.

Next, come out from the tip of one arm

and enter the tip of the next Straight Stitch.

Take the needle out between the two 

stitches, near the centre.

Go under the loop.

Give the thread a bit slack 

and enter right in the centre,

catching the loop.

Work you way around the star 

in the same way.

What do you end up with? This

beautiful star with a little cross

in the centre.

Isn't it heavenly?


  1. I love it! I wonder if it would work with two different colours? One needle threaded with the blue for the outer cross, and perhaps another threaded with silver for the inner cross?

  2. Now, that is very pretty. Perfect for the Star that guided the Magi on a Christmas card!

  3. That makes a beauty of a star, the little cross is the sparkle.
    And I agree, perfect for a Christmas theme project.
    Nice tutorial too.

  4. Great stitch!

  5. Congratulations on reaching 150... and a great stitch to celebrate.
