Take a Stitch Tuesday Stitch 79

Whipped Spoke Stitch in contemporary embroidery Stitch 79 in TASTStitch 79 in the Take a Stitch Tuesday ( TAST) is Whipped Spoke Stitch which I have to admit I love. You can work it in lines or circles or as part of a border or simple freeform as I have done in the sample above. As you can see using hand dyed cotton perle #5 thread I combined beads and Whipped Spoke stitch with French knots, Cast on stitch, bullion knots, and whipped wheel stitch. Tutorials to all of these stitches can be found in my Stitch Dictionary.

As Usual you can find a tutorial for stitch 79 – Whipped Spoke stitch in my Stitch Dictionary.

A little TAST News:

Next week I will post a challenge stitch then we will take a 2 week break to allow people to do a little catch up stitching if they need to. The break coincides with Easter so for busy families you can take a rest from the TAST challenge.

    Love to see these stitches in your work and I especially love the picture at the top of the article. The alternative uses of this stitch are great. Must have a go at them as well!

    Both template sets arrived today. Yea! Faster than the Post Office thought. Guess the USA was not overly threatened by “plastic templates.” Thank you. Will be setting to work on a T shirt design, since that is mostly what I buy and wear.
