To stitch on the Mystery Project for 2009


Using 3 strands of C1________________, stitch this area in the Donohue stitch. This stitch is composed of diagonal elements that move in a slowly ascending oblique path. Turn the canvas ¼ turn so the top of the design is now on the left to stitch this area. Begin at the top (as you are looking at it) of the area. In each new row, the “over 3” stitch is immediately to the right of the “over 3” stitch from the previous row.
