Detached split stitch

Sunday Stitch School is a private challenge at Queeniepatch, she started with Anundsjö StitchThis stitch is new to me, so I just had to give it a try. But first I flipped through my embroidery books to see if I could find it. I found it in The Stitches of Creative Embroidery by Jacqueline Enthoven, it’s detached split stitch. Luckily I have the Dutch translation of the same book, so I also found the Dutch name: losse splijtsteek. I have a few unfinished samplers and this stitch was perfect for my pretty fabric sampler. I used Stef Francis per 5 for my detached split stitch. Just click the photo to take a closer look.

  1. How nice to see the Anundsjö stitch in turquoise on your pretty fabric. SO different from the traditional red on white. Good to have a Dutch name for it. I also found it in Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroiery Stitches! Why didn't I see it before I wrote the lesson?
    I am looking forward to studying other less known stitches in future lessons.
