Trellis stitch success

Thank you all for your input on my Trellis stitching, it’s great to know there is always help available.

Sharon you were correct that I was not using the right stitch.  It was indeed a buttonhole I did.

Ruth I went back to review Jeanne’s photos and realized I was looping the thread around the needle the wrong way causing a buttonhole effect.

I immediately got the spiraling but now need to practise more for tension as I’m still not happy with the look – not smooth enough.

I found any twisted rayon works better for me and the plain threads must be spiraling but to me just look knotty.

Miriam I wish that all Stitchers lived close enough to share highs and lows.   In the stumpwork book I have it shows the flat version being worked only from the left to right and that may help you.  Just draw the thread underneath from right to left and start again.   I liked Mary’s description of a ‘c’ and a ‘g’ for wrapping….pity I mixed them up doing the spiral one.  With new glasses I have no excuse.

Well here are the latest samples

  1. EVen your “failures” look great to me. You were struggling with twisted trellis, while I have not yet mastered the basic trellis stitch. I love the examples of your “success with the twist” as well as the shisha. Well done, Maureen!

  2. Great to hear you got it sorted. I wonder how many others made the same mistake – easy to do

  3. This looks much better! In the meantime I have managed to master the flat version. I was making the stitches too tight. Thanks for your advice.

  4. Glad to see you got it twisting,

    regards, RuthP
