Detached blanket stitch - Homespun

On October 3rd 2013


This stitch is formed in the same way as buttonhole stitch but is worked into itself rather than the foundation fabric. Come up at A, down at B, back up at A and pull through to make a bar. Slide the needle under the bar and over the thread to form a loop. Do not pull the loop tight against the bar. Continue in this manner to produce a row of stitches. If more rows are required, make each loop on top of the one below.
