Sunday Stitch School- No 86. Anklet stitch

I used green perle 8 and varied the width of the pattern, on Aida cloth.

This one I added to a CQ piece that has other SSS stitches on
it.   I used a fine cotton thread that has a twist…not a DMC type.

My doodle cloth was next. I worked a wavy line in green perle – then I drew a pink line and added the Anklet stitch as leaves.  I think with a little playing this could make a good fern leaf…perhaps loose FKs on each tip.

The last sample was the circle.  I alternated a wider variety, then a smaller one around and found I’d not enough space to add another of each so I drew a tree trunk with the pink pen, which is easily removed with a warm iron. I couldn’t crop the remaining, old stitches.

I aim to use the Anklet stitch to create a bigger tree.

  1. A tree will be perfect with this stitch!

    • I think so too, Diane.

  2. I love how you have used them in a circle.

    • Thanks, Queenie- this stitch has potential.

  3. Another interesting stitch! It would look great with some beads added too, wouldn’t it.

    • It isn’t difficult at all, MA. Yes beads would look good. I must play with them.
