This week the dark green stripe will be stitched. It uses Glisten. This thread adds a bit of metallic to a Merino wool thread. Unlike other metallic/wool combinations, the metalic and wool in Glisten are twisted together, making a very stable thread.
As is often the case with darker colors, stitches are less well-defined. Because of this characyteristic, this stripe is stitched in Stepped Giant Cashmere, below.
I found it easiest to stitch a row at a time. This made it easier to see the two-thread steps between the Cashmeres in columns. If you stitch column by column, you may find it more difficult to place the next column’s stitches correctly.
If you are stitching the squares tree, stitch the dark green blocks in Staircase Stitch, below.
