Stitch of the Month
March 2009: Kimi Stitch

by Tony Minieri

This stitch is composed of offset Cashmere stitches that are spaced apart by one thread from row to row and an oblique stepped pattern that fills in the empty spaces.

When working the second half of the pattern, use Back and Run tracking for this step.

*** This stitch can be used for clothing and architectural subjects.

To stitch on the Mystery Project for 2009

AREA 2 STITCH 2
Using 3 strands of B1_________________________ for the offset cashmere stitches and 1 strand of B5____________________for the filler stitches, stitch this area in the Kimi stitch. This stitch is composed of offset Cashmere stitches that are spaced apart by one thread from row to row and an oblique stepped pattern that fills in the empty spaces. When working the second half of the pattern, use Back and Run tracking for this step.

****When you hit the inner outline of the sleeve, break the stitch into two elements where it crosses his line so you can delineate this line and backstitch it later. Do this for all subsequent pattern that hit either of these design lines.

Note this pattern is on both sides of the center of the Kimono, starting on the upper right side and continuing on the left side. Be sure you have allowed 12 threads for the center of the Kimono, which will be stitch 4.
