Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 197: German Blanket Stitch

Sorry for the disruption last week. All is well again, so let's start with a quiz!

What are the names of these stitches?

a) __________________



b) ___________________________





c) _______________________________

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Answers: a) Buttonhole Stitch, b) Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch, c) Knotted Buttonhole Stitch

a) and b) are TAST stitches, and c) is Sunday Stitch School Stitch #36


So what is today's stitch? Well, it is a version of the Buttonhole Stitch, closest to c),  and is called German Blanket Stitch, or German Buttonhole Stitch, if you prefer.

I found it at Anita's blog Artistic Fingers

This is how to make it:

Start with a pair of slanted Buttonhole Stitch.

Insert the needle, right to left,  
under the two 'legs'.

Pull the thread through until you have 
wrapped the 'legs' with a loop.

Continue in the same way. 
Easy peasy!

Homework:
Squeeze in some German Blanket Stitches on these samplers. 
It might be the last stitch for the Teal Wool Tailoring Scribble Cloth. It is time to start on a new scribble cloth.

  7. Everything has a buttonhole name. In other words, if You make a round stitch and cut the center, will the button be stopped?
