Do you know the Portuguese Border Stitch?
It is one of the stitches I once learned in the TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) course. Basically it is a stitch worked on a 'ladder'. You go up the ladder on one side, and then down on the other, placing four stitches on each of the ladder's rungs.
Today we have a variation of the Portuguese Border Stitch. How you move along the rungs is different, though. This stitch is perfect for making flowers and as the result reminds me of a clover, I have given it the unofficial name: Portuguese Clover Stitch. Should you know of the real name, don't hesitate to leave a comment and I will change the name.
The best choice for nice coverage is six strands of floss, DMC or Anchor, or similar.
You can watch it being worked on YouTube.
or check out my photos.
First you need to draw the outlines of the flower, then stitch some horisontal bars.
