Looped blanket stitch is a beautiful stitch that can be used to make a beautiful flower or in any pattern. This is part of the blanket stitch family.
What you will need?
- Any fabric.
- Embroidery hoop, 15cm (6″) (Bigger if you are working on a larger design) ( You can purchase a set of 6 hoops from Amazon for your basic needs.)
- Tapestry needle
- Embroidery thread (You can buy this pack of 36 shades of the DMC embroidery floss.)
How many strands of floss do you need for making the Looped Blanket Stitch?
You can use all 6 strands of the floss. But if you are working on a finer design, then start with 2 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design. I have used all 6 strands for making this stitch.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the Looped Blanket Stitch
1. Bring the thread up at point A and insert it again from point B to point C. Now, pull the thread gently leaving some thread at the end to form a loop. Do not pull the thread tightly to form a stitch.
2. Take the needle again from point D to point E. Leave some thread towards the end.
3. Continue working in a similar pattern for the rest of the design. If you are making a flower, then continue to work from outside of the circle to the inside.
