Sunday Stitch School Lazy Daisy Picot

No.118 Lazy Daisy Picot stitch worked on Aida with Perle 5 thread.  The twisting of the chains make me think of Celtic knots.

 

 

I tested it out with a circle.  I had to lighten the colour as it was so deeply rich the knots were almost invisible.  Easier to see now.
I used double strands of a fine wool, which I dyed some time ago with a daughter.  I was the one learning.

 

 

 

 

The third sample I tried as leaves, with perle 5 thread and for the flowers I used 2 strands of Cottage Garden variegated Thread.

Enjoyable to do.

Thank you Queenie for yet another different, interesting and easy stitch.

For anyone interested in needlework samples, please visit Queenie’s lessons for all 118 stitches…so far.

The Home blog is well worth seeing also.

  1. Thank you for the likes, Ssmw166 and hettyanddaisy

  2. Ohhh, these are beautiful!

  3. Love the lazy daisy picot Maureen 🙂 x

    • Thank you Barbara.Maybe you should try it too :-))

  4. very sweet flower…and hand dyed yarn is scrumptious!

  5. Thanks Ktj, The thread is richer than shown here. It was fun to dye my own threads too.

  6. I have been so lazy and just worked my homework stitches whereas you make these fantastic floral designs. Well Done!

    • Thank you very much, Queenie I’d say I have more time to play, whereas you have several ongoing projects that need much more concentration…plus posting How-tos.

  7. Yes, I like this one, too. The last one just screams at me that it needs to be on my last block for the CQJP. It is so pretty! I’m going to have to look to see if I have any perle 5, as I don’t commonly buy it. Just a lovely green, too.

    • Thanks again, Susan. You don’t need to use perle. The 6 ply DMC should work as well, or a knitting cotton.maybe even wool. Experiment!

  8. As I was reading this I was wondering how many stitches had been in the series up until now and you answered my question before I even asked it (great minds!!). This is another one that I hadn’t seen before.
