Casalguidi 5

I found a triangle pulled thread stitch in an old Dutch embroidery book for my Casalguidi background. I like the shape, so I share my way of stitching it. It's stitched in rows from right to left. The stitch is done over 3 x 6 threads. First you make a V-shape in 2 steps. Make a horizontal stitch from right to left by picking up 6 threads. Then make a diagonal stitch from bottom to top.

Close the top with a last stitch to complete the triangle and bring your needle up for the next stitch. When you finished a row, just turn your work and stitch the next one.

And this is how it looks on my project. I made the rows from top to bottom and reverse. I also started to make a raised stem stitch band. I couched 3 threads of cotton and covered it with satin stitches. This little sneak peek is 1 inch wide.

  2. That's very attractive! A difference between this and the Lace Stitch is that the latter is stitched twice, hence making it easy to pull hard.

    1. I'm sure one day I'll try the lace stitch too. Life's too busy to stitch these days!
