Sunday Stitch School is a private challenge at Queeniepatch, gate stitch is the 7th stitch. It was new to me, so I just had to give it a try. It’s a needlepoint stitch, but I first stitched it on 14 count Aida. The first sample is in green wool and is combined with cross stitch in purple perle 12.
My second sample is done in perle 8 and 12. Just take a closer look at my Aida sampler here.
And this is gate stitch on my pink 28 count linen needlepoint sampler. It’s done in perle 8. I used the instructions in Mary Thomas’s Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches.
