There is no other stitch that gives the same wonderful effect as Turkeywork. At the same time, I know of few stitches that give needlepointers as much anxiety as this stitch.
It doen’t need to be a problem. In a new blog post from Needlepoint.com, you can learn about this great stitch.
I’d only add a few tips.
- Always stitch from the bottom of an area to the top. Doing this keeps the loops out of your way.
- If you are stitching uncut Turkeywork, make all your loops over something. This makes them even easier.
- Trim only a little bit at a time and do it all over the area. Stop when the length is a tiny bit longer than what you want.
- When you are finished trimming, go around the edge and trim off a tiny bit on the outside threads all around. This keeps the Turkeywork from splaying out.
