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 a chart for adding an intricate embroidered flower to your knitting. My source of inspiration for this pattern is the Franz Donat Large Book of Textiles, originally published in the 19th century. The stitch can also be seen in Japanese Kogin and Estonian Roosimine. As I have studied the art of embroidery, I have been fascinated by how stitching can be a common bond that unites us throughout time and across cultures.
The instructions for this motif are charted and accompanied by succinct directions on execution.
