Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 184: Herringbone Ladder Stitch

Welcome to Sunday Stitch School where we have another lesson and a new stitch for you. It is called Herringbone Ladder Stitch and is a filling stitch. Like so many other great stitches it comes from Sarah's Hand Embroidery Tutorials, see her instructions here.

Below you can see mine:

Make two lines of staggered Back Stitch

Change to a contrasting thread.
Then just follow the pictures.

The usual three samplers.


  1. Another nice orderly stitch. I like it.

  2. Those stars are fabulous! I wonder if it could be done on regular fabric.

  3. It makes a good broad line, with a nice curlicue feel to it.

  4. Beautiful tutorial!
    And the stars are very attractive. A flashy choice for a border don't you think?

  5. A neat, easy and effective stitch for filling, edges, leaves and many other shapes.

  6. Nice neat stitches, and those stars are fantastic.
