It is time for another Canvas stitch, and once again I have picked one from the collection at the Badasscrossstitch blog. The stitch is called Fancy Brick Stitch and is worked like this:
The green and blue stitches use four holes,
the red three holes.
Begin with the stitches at the top.
Make a column of three stitches using four holes.
Move to the right and make another column.
Continue until you have filled your area,
or the 'block' you want to make.
Next use Running Stitch to make a
line of horizontal stitches (using four
holes) underneath the columns.
Notice the placement.
Make a similar set on the return
It is now time for the vertical
stitches. Use Upright Straight Stitch
to make two stitches between the
light green ones.
Observe that you have to 'dig' underneath
