Rittenhouse Needlepoint’s Stitch of the Week, pictured above, is Double. It’s not a well-known stitch, but it’s a good one.
Double is combination of two cross stitches, a regular cross and an oblong cross. I love it for places where a strong texture is needed in a relatively small space. It’s great for mountains, nubby fabrics, sweaters, or to give texture to lots of leaves.
Try it out!
