Tree of Stitches – Smyrna Stitch

Leave a comment

That Peapod green was calling to me so I took a wee break from my new project and did the first specialist stitch on my tree. I hadn’t done Smyrna Stitch before but it was really easy. I just had to make sure all the crosses were done in the same order so they looked the same. I really love this shade of green, especially now I can see what it looks like with all the variegation showing. I’m glad I held out for it instead of settling for the other shade.

Thanks again Tree for coming to the rescue with those two skeins.

This is what it all looks like so far.

The next stitch should be French knots or Colonial knots depending on preference, but the general advice is to do part four next instead. That way it’s easier to get the placement of the knots correct. And, that way I can put off doing those pesky knots for a little longer.
