This week’s stitch for the weekly embroidery challenge Take a Stitch Tuesday is knotted loop stitch. Since I’ve skipped over last week’s stitch, I’ll have to catch up with that one later. This one appealed to me more. In fact, I really liked the free form playfulness that the stitch allows.
I’ve got my sample stitched up on the spirit figure started with the knotted buttonhole.
The first row is a burnt orange. The stitch is worked right to left, but I didn’t like the way the center line disappeared going downhill.
Second row is a dark brown. This time I worked in mirror image from left to right and stitched uphill. Somehow this worked better for me even though I’m right handed. Go figure!
The final layer is a variegated pearl cotton in autumn colors.
