Working the Straight Feather Stitch

© Cheryl C. Fall, Licensed to About.com

The Straight Feather Stitch is worked in the same manner as the basic feather stitch show on the previous page, with the exception of the loops lining up. When working the straight feather stitch, the loops spaced one under the other along one side (in this case, aligned to the left), giving a straight appearance on the right or left side.

This stitch looks really pretty when used as an edging for a Redwork embroidery design.
