Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 194: Magic Blanket Stitch

Ready for another stitch? 

Today's one is 'tricky' in the real sense of the word. Let's do some magic! Once again we will use two threads of different colour.

This trick was taught by Anita of Artistic Fingers: Magic Blanket Stitch.

You need to thread the needle with two threads of different colours.


Make a Buttonhole Stitch, with ONE of the threads (here brown).

Make the next Buttonhole Stitch with the OTHER thread (yellow).

Continue alternating the two threads.
Anchor the last one.
Hey Presto!

Add some magic to these samplers.


  1. The name makes me think magic carpet! I like the look of this stitch.

  2. It's definitely tricky. There are two effect with one stitch by magic.

  3. I really like the look of this double drizzle stitch. I have yet to try it but definitely plan to do so.

  4. Oooh, another new and interesting one!

  5. That's a funny stitch, it reminds me of the magic chain!

  6. Magic Blanket Stitch using two colors makes a beautiful embellishment.

  7. It will make a good border or neckline.
