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 an embroidered cable motif. I was inspired by Aran knitting for this embroidery design.
As I have explored the concept of embroidery on knitting, I have found the use of negative space to be fascinating. For example, this motif is remarkably beautiful in the inverse of the original. I have included both charts in this document for you to enjoy.
The instructions for stitching this motif is charted. If you need additional assistance reading your knitted stitches, please visit my website, bloomhandmadestudio.com, for in-depth tutorials on adding embroidery to stockinette.
This stunning stitch pattern can be applied to any knitted piece! For patterns designed with embroidery in mind, including this beautiful sweater, please visit my website, bloomhandmadestudio.com.
