Stitch of the Week - Open Cretan Stitch

By September 9, 2012

Follow me on:

The open cretan stitch is similar to feather stitch, as it uses interlocking curved stitches, but is made using stitches that are vertical along the upper and lower edges.

It can be used to outline shapes, as a border, or to join two pieces of material together using a decorative, open lacy stitch.

Learn to work both the stitch both ways. It's easy to work and is a great addition to your stitch repertoire.

You can find this and other pretty stitch options in the embroidery stitches area.
