Stitch of the Month
January 2001:
Sprat's Head and Variation

by Joni Stevenson

The Sprat’s Head Stitch creates a perfect triangle. This stitch produces a woven effect. Each new stitch goes over the previous ones. When using a stranded thread, lay the threads carefully for a smooth appearance.

If need be this stitch can be adapted a little to fit an odd shaped area.
