Friday Homework for Lesson 161: Ceylon Stitch

Although this is not a stitch known for counted work, it does look best of a gridded fabric like Aida.

Aida Sampler

I used six stands of DMC cotton and the result is very thick and filling.

The two blocks look untidy with this hard highly twisted cotton thread. 
Worked one stitch a line, (in soft silk) it really becomes the Vandyke Stitch. It takes a curve easily.

The denser the stitches, the more of a knitted look you get.


  1. You can get a lot of interesting looks with this stitch.

  2. It's tricky to get the tension right, but worth the effort, isn't it!

  3. it looks like it would be a good stitch for a jumper for Sunbonnet Sue

  4. I looked for more info on the Ceylon Stitch and the description said it is a filler stitch and can be used for a 'knitted look' as in a knitted sweater or scarf. That's what I thought, when I first saw your sample. Interesting and thanks for sharing that stitch Queenie.
