Algerian Eyelet

Where to use it:
  • In counted thread designs like samplers
  • When you want a stitch replicating a squared star shape
  • as a border stitch
  • In old-time samplers, it was often used multiple times to form a block letter in an alphabet
  • This stitch is usually worked over four threads on an evenweave fabric or linen, but it can also be enlarged and worked over six or even eight threads.
  • If you pull slightly as you stitch, it creates an open hole in the center for a "lacy" look.

What to use:
  • Kreinik thinner braids (one strand) like Very Fine #4 Braid, Fine #8 Braid
  • Kreinik Silk Mori (one strand)
  • Silk Bella

How to do it:
Follow the diagram for needle and stitch placement, coming up at 1, down at 2, up at 3, down at 4, etc. Always go down in the center hole.
