New Stitch Monday With a Twist – Week 5
As I continue looking for stitches that are new to me for the Raymond Crawford “NEEDLEPOINT” canvas, I found a great stitch. For the letter “L” I did the Twisted Columns stitch. What I did discover is this stitch would be fantastic for a larger area. So, keeping that in mind when you are choosing stitches make sure you get the look that you are looking for in a stitch. Some stitches look good in smaller areas while others look better in a larger area.
I did this stitch in 3 steps using Soie Cristal #5074, Neon Rays N138 & Neon Rays Plus NP138. I used 4 strands of Soie Cristal for Step 1 shown yellow on the diagram. For Step 2 use Neon Rays N138 shown green on the diagram. For Step 3 use Neon Rays Plus NP138 shown blue on the diagram. The beauty of this stitch is you can choose to use 2 threads instead of 3 by using the same-colored thread for Step 2 & Step 3. I was looking for a little glitter in this stitch. The next time I do the Twisted Columns stitch I will most likely try it as a background.
I hope you can use this in your 21 new stitches for the 2021 Challenge. Give it a try!
Happy Stitching – Stephanie
