THE STITCH FILES-Cretan

Some samples of Cretan stitchingI added Fly stitches to the weaving

In this last photo the Top 2 are doodles but the bottom row is different to Sharon’s Knotted Cretan. Probably somebody else has tried this way.

Without turning the fabric I do 2 anti-clockwise wraps on the top of the row and 2 clockwise wraps on the bottom.  I found it sits neatly.  It looks better with 2 wraps rather than one – see photo above, bottom blue one.

Tip make sure the thread between knots lays flat to the insertion hole.
