Last week’s stitch of the week from Rittenhouse Needlepoint is one of my favorites, Arrowhead. It’s a variation of Scotch Stitch where half the stitch is made up of Tent Stitches.
Big Deal you say?
But there is more to this stitch than that. The middle stitch in the longest row of Tent Stitches is done in the same color as the other half of the Scotch, with the other Tent Stitches being “background,” making little arrowheads. You can make this bold or subtle, making it a great stitch for needlepoint.
