Sunday Stitch School – Nos.57,58,59

No 57. Figure 8 Knot. The white thread of my previous try for this stitch was a bit loose as it moved if touched, so I tried again with various threads.

The red was done with Edmar Brazilian ‘Frost’
The blue- Perle 8
Yellow – 6 DMC threads
Grey – crochet thread
Gold-  I think it may be knitted.  I know it unravels if pulled. It sits well but loses definition because of the shine.  Does that make sense?

No. 58 Twisted Shell
Working curves with this stitch is great. No problem keeping the tension or placement.
I found I needed to keep a tension on the straight version. I held the twisted part and tightened the second movement before continuing.
No. 59 Knotted Running stitch.  What a lovely, quick and pleasing stitch this is.

  1. Those all look so great! I love learning from your experiments. I’ve been going through Queenie’s old posts and picking out some stitches to try on my CQ.

    • I’m pleased that you’ve tried stitches from Queenie’s blog as they are all worth knowing, even if you don’t do all of them.

  2. I am glad you like the stitches. The Figure-Eight Stitch behaves so very differently depending on the thread.
    Your curves of Twisted Shell Chain Stitch are great, could be used for iron bridges!
    Knotted Running Stitch has a lovely look and is easy, but I have found there is an even easier way to work it!!! More on Friday!

    • I’ll watch for Friday’s post.

  3. More nice stitches – a couple of new-to-me ones too.

    • The stitches are good to do. I’ve only had bother with 2 from the beginning of school.
