Stitch of the Week 15: Stem Stitch

Take a Stitch on Tuesday, April 16, 2013   Welcome to week 15! (Sort of… remember we are using week numbers to match the original 2012 TAST, and they’ve taken a week off. This is STITCH # 14)

This week’s stitch is Stem stitch. Here is the SharonB’s Stitch Dictionary pages with instructions on how to do it.

There is only one Stem Stitch variation, but we won’t see Outline Stitch in this TAST Challenge. I think it is a good week to once and for all figure out the difference, and SEE the difference between stem and outline! It all has to do with the twist of the thread. Try them both and see for yourself. Maybe its just me that can’t ever remember the names right 😉

Here’s what SharonB wrote for TAST 2012 Week 15: Stem Stitch. You can read her instructions and see inspiring examples there.

Please follow her procedure and put a link to your published Stem Stitch and their variations pictures in the comments of the latest TAST post here. Just click the post title, and scroll down to the comment section!

Please post the link to your Stem Stitch photos in THIS comment section if you also wish to share it here with any of us re-runners!

Of course, I will be putting my TAST 2012 Re-run stitches right here on this blog, because that’s why I started it in the first place 🙂

Happy Stitching!
