Stitch of the Season: Learn the Ray Stitch
Spring has sprung here in Kansas City, which made us think… what better time to share one of our favorite springy stitches with you all? 


Today we want to teach you the “Ray Stitch.” Whether you’re trying out decorative stitches for the first time or coming back for a refresher, this is a great stitch to tuck in your back pocket and use on landscapes. The Ray stitch is a very versatile stitch that we love using for greenery and foliage. Take a look at the diagram below. How perfectly does it resemble small patches of grass?





When working the Ray Stitch, be sure to follow the numbering on the diagram. You will want to ensure you’re always coming up in the outer hole and going down into the “shared hole.” This will help ensure that you don’t split the stitches when trying to come up in the shared hole as you work.

 
Try the stitch out for yourself on a canvas and tag us on Instagram @kcneedlepoint and #kcneedlepoint for us to see!

And as always... subscribe to our email list to make sure you never miss a blog post!
