Stitch of the Week - Square Boss

By December 6, 2012

Follow me on:

The square boss stitch is worked nearly identically to the rice stitch, with the exception of shorter arms crossing the large base stitch. The shorter arms are worked closer to the center of the stitch.

This stitch can be used in borders and rows, to accent a hem, or as an individual element in an embroidery design. For example, the square boss stitch was used in the outer borders of the Northern Woods counted thread project.

This, and other versatile and useful stitches, can be found in the alphabetical embroidery stitches list.

Dear Cheryl,

Could you please help me out by making the counted thread project of ‘the Northern Woods’ available on page 2 of the write up. Ihave tried for days but the picture does not appear.

Thank you very much,
Merry Christmas,

I’ve checked the patter using both my laptop, hubby’s laptop and my iPhone, and had no problems with it using Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. The culprit could be the security settings on your system – they may be set too high – or your internet connection. Unfortunately, every system is different, and without being there, it’s difficult to troubleshoot the issue. Please let me know if you continue to have problems, and I will send a pdf of the pattern when I return home from my trip tomorrow.
