of the Month
September 2002: Amadeus Stitch
Amadeus stitch is another wonderful twisty stitch from the fabulously
creative Jean Hilton. I like it because it makes such a nice
triangular corner. It can be varied in size easily. Work the stitch
following the numbers, first on one side of center, then on the other.
Count carefully! The stitch has an oval opening in the center that is
perfect for a bugle bead or a slanted crossed stitch. The stitch can
easily be rotated in any direction; the purple stitched sample is a mirror
image of the diagram.
we use this stitch primarily in geometric applications, it's also good on
painted canvases for those awkward triangular spaces.
