TDiTM Stitch 49
Reference: Twelve Dozen Stitches in Twelve Months
I think the Christmas colors in stitch 47 put me in a holiday mood…and I stitched this one in Orange with black accents for Halloween apparently! The strong contrast in colors does a good job in defining the elements of the stitch…and if the large lazy daisy stitch was done in black…that would change it up again.
This stitch is basically stitch 48 with a large lazy daisy added at the "V" of the curved chain base. Keep you daisy semi-tight if you want a long slender stitch as shown her, or very relaxed if you want a “fat” more tear-drop shaped stitch.
