Tutorial: Star Stitch

My Favourite Tutorial - post header

Sometimes the simplest things are the ones we use the most. And so it is with this stitch which I call the star stitch. So far I haven't come across this stitch in a stitch dictionary - although I have seen other stitches called 'star stitch'. If you have come across it, I'd love to know about it. Since this stitch looks like a star - that's what I'm calling it.

If you are familiar with my patterns - you'll know that I use it quite a lot. Because I love it. I like to think of it as the stitch that adds a bit of sparkle. Perfect when I want to add a bit of extra colour.

It is really simple to do:

Star Stitch tutorial
Make a large flat cross stitch. Then add a vertical stitch in the middle. And there you have it, a star!

Little Star Flower
Here's a little flower with some extra star sparkle. :-)

What are you stitching? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
