Stitch of the Month
November 1999: Parisian Stitch
by Beth Robertson
The Parisian Stitch can be worked vertically or
horizontally. It is made up of straight Gobelin stitches
worked over 2 and 4 canvas threads. It produces a diamond
shape that is great for clothing or backgrounds. It is
easy to compensate and is great for small or large areas.
The Parisian can also be doubled by working two straight
stitches over 2 threads and then two stitches over 4
threads. This variation shown below is called the Double
Parisian. This variation produces more pattern and
