Pistil Stitch

Pistil Stitch is nothing but a combination of French knot and a straight stitch i.e. a tailed French knot. This is again a Brazilian embroidery stitch technique.

Let us see the process,

Pistil1

Two points are involved in the needle movement of Pistil Stitch.

Pistil2

Step 1 : Take the needle out through the point A.

Pistil3

Step 2 : Twist the thread around the needle to make the French knot, then insert the needle through the point B.

Pistil Stitch is formed…. simple rite ???

Pistil4

Some trials Smile

Started with a master plan in mind, but ended up in something else Sad smile.
