How Hand Embroider Triangular Feather Stitch

Triangular Feather Stitch is a variety of feather stitch. I am sure my readers who do crazy quilting will find it interesting and it is a fun stitch to add a bead to.

How to work Triangular Feather Stitch

I found Triangular feather stitch in a book by Edith John titled Creative Stitches. It is a quick stitch to work once you get in the rhythm of it. I am sure it is a very versatile stitch too as it is a member of the feather stitch family!

To work this stitch you need a basic working knowledge of feather stitch.

Triangular Feather Stitch step 1

Work this stitch between two imaginary parallel lines from top to bottom.

To start this stitch work two regular feather stitches.  Bring your needle out on the right hand side of the line. Move to the left and insert your needle with the point emerging directly below as illustrated.

Triangular Feather Stitch step 2

With the thread under the needle pull your needle through.This completes your first single feather stitch. Move downward and to the left and make another single feather stitch.

Triangular Feather Stitch step 3Take your needle to the right and insert it where your thread emerged on the first feather stitch. Look at the illustration and position the needle as illustrated. The needle should emerges on the right hand side and lower than the base of the second feather stitch.

Triangular Feather Stitch step 4With the thread under the needle pull your needle through.

Triangular Feather Stitch Continue this way down the line. It looks a little complex but once in the swing of it you will find it easy.

    Beautiful presentation! Wish I had found this just a couple days earlier – would have been a perfect stitch to complete a embroidered, felted egg I am working on.

    But – I am sure I will sone find another use for this stitch! Thank you so much!

    A bit tricky to work around the diamond shape, but it works to balance the black shapes on the other panel.
