Brick Stitches can be worked in so many different combinations. They are by far some of the most versatile stitches in needlepoint.
Horizontal Elongated Smyrna is a cousin to the regular Smyrna Cross Stitch.
Reversed or "Alternating" Mosaic Stitch is made up of smaller mosaic stitches, some of which have been reversed in the canvas. The way the stitch is organized gives way to a larger pattern when stitched in the canvas.
Cashmere Stitch- Vertical is made up of tent stitches and diagonal stitches over two. This stitch makes an upright rectangle in the canvas.
This stitch is great for architectural areas on the canvas like buildings and sidewalks.
Mosaic Stitches are great stitches for any square area on your canvas that is two canvas threads by two canvas threads.
Reverse Mosaic Stitches are great stitches for any square area on your canvas that is two canvas threads by two canvas threads.
There are so many variations on Brick Stitches. This version of the stitch is worked as a horizontal straight stitch that spans over two canvas threads.
This is a very versatile stitch- especially for small areas on your canvas.
Giant Brick Stitches are Brick Stitches that span over four canvas threads as opposed to two. The entire Horizontal Brick Stitch pattern has been doubled from its original form.
