A new week has begun and I've learnt a new stitch for ROSE.Shall I share it with you?
This time the stitch is called Petal Stitch aka pendant chain stitch.It is a combination of two well known stitches - outline stitch and detached chain or lazy daisy.Needlecrafter has a diagram for it and another illustration is here . Both illustrations refer to stem stitch and lazydaisy combination.Needlecrafter points the chain downward whereas fruncesybordados stitches it upwards.The method differs slightly in both the cases.I tried both and I think Petal stitch is a combination of outline stitch and lazydaisy rather than stem stitch.Only then the name Pendant chain suits it.When you see the pics you'll know why.
Here's a quick tutorial...
step 1: Up at A,down at B and come up at C.
step 3: Make a detached chain at c. Come up at a point half the length of the outline stitch.
step 4: Take the needle through the detached chain for the next outline stitch.
Having some fun ;)
My learning for the week is done.I've stitched it on my ROSE sampler and written the name of the stitch alongside.If anyone is learning a new stitch and recording it, do let me know.I too would like to try it out.
