Square boss

TAST stitch 109 is square boss. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, 
an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.

I’ve stitched my sampler on 14 count Aida. The threads are perle 12 and  cotton a broder. It’s a combo of square boss and square boss with an upright cross stitch, inspired by Queenie’s stitches.
It started with a row of cross stitches in perle 12.
Then I stitched upright cross stitches between them in cotton a broder.
Another progress photo, the normal square boss stitches are finished.
Take a closer look at my stitches here.


  1. as usual you have taken this stitch and made so may variations, all very good

  2. You, and only you, could manipulate this stitch into such a beautiful pattern. One day in the far future, a textile historian will find your work and look and look and try to figure out which stitches you have used. Or rather will KNOW how you made this as you are so good at documenting with text and pictures.
    Keep up the good work, Annet!

    1. Thank you, Queenie!! My blog is my online notebook, I can easily find what I stitched in the past. I do hope my embroidery will stand the ravages of time!
