Stitch of the Week - Double Feather

By October 12, 2012

Follow me on:

The stitch of the week is the double feather stitch. This stitch differs from the basic feather stitch in that it is worked in staggering groups of three stitches. Three u-shaped stitches are worked diagonally to the left, followed by three worked to the right.

The result is a wide, airy decorative stitch that can be worked along a straight line as a band. The lacy effect is dramatic when worked as a border a few inches from the hem of table linens or sheets and pillowcases.

You can easily find it in the feather stitch samples section or the alphabetical stitch list. Give it a try!
