Week 16 of the #YearOfStitch : Laced Running Stitch
This one is going to feel like a cross between backstitch and cloud filling. It makes such a beautiful border and it’s crazy simple.
Now for the photos
Start with your running stitch. Add as many as you like and space them however you like. Here I come up, skip one hole and go back down.
Then I skip 3 holes to start the next stitch
Now it’s time to lace it up…
Bring your thread from the back through the hole you skipped under your first running stitch like so:
Then weave that bad boy up and down until you run out of horizontal stitches
I only did a few because it was a tiny hoop and I’m in a hurry but you can go on forevs. To finish, you can just do as you did at the start. Bring your floss through to the back via the middle stitch under your last horizontal stitch and tie it off.
Now get at it!
