Stockinette is a wonderful stitch that is easy to learn, simple to work, and beautiful to behold. But perhaps best of all is that it is also a perfect grid for embroidery! This document contains charts for two different embroidered cable motifs, inspired by twisted stitch cable knitting patterns.
This PDF includes charts for three different sizes of embroidered hearts. The first, photographed here, have been applied to a hat made using my design called My Next Hat Canvas. The chart and nominal written instructions for this motif are a marvelous way to begin your embroidery on knitting exploration!
Recognizing that you may wish you stitch a larger or smaller heart, I have included charts for a two other options, as well as commentary on how to use different weights of yarn when embroidering.
For additional embroidery motifs and tutorials, please visit my website, bloomhandmadestudio.com. Likewise, for patterns designed with embroidery in mind, you’ll find a host of “Canvas” patterns on my website. These are simple stockinette designs just perfect forembroidering! Happy stitching!
