Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 156: Hyacinth Stitch

Welcome to another year of stitch exploration. Let us start the year with the advent of spring. 

Hyacinth Stitch is a stacked stitch, a combination of Fly Stitch and Twisted Chain Stitch. I found it at Rachel's VirtuoSew Adventures, she created this stitch when she was working on a display of Grape Hyacinths.


Make an upside down Fly Stitch, and add a Detached Twisted Chain Stitch on top.

Follow the pictures.











Homework:
Borders of hyacinths want to sprout in these three 'flower beds'

  1. New stitch to me. Added to this my stitch dictionary. Nice one.

  2. Beautifully clear instructions - it makes the stitch seem so much more "real" than when I invented it by accident!

  3. With the purple thread it really looks like a hyacinth. I love the smell of these flowers.

  5. Hyacinth stitch is a great way to look forward to spring, perfect to tuck into your 'flower bed,' I agree!
