Ribbed Spider Wheel is a beautiful stitch that can be made into awesome embroidery patterns. This stitch uses the same technique as the woven rose. This stitch is also known as raised spider web and back stitched spider web.
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 Ribbed Spider Wheel?
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 Raised Spider Web Wheel
1. Make any number of straight stitches in a star pattern as shown in the above picture.
2. Bring the second thread in the middle of the stitches. You can either use the same thread or contrasting thread.
2. Turn over the needle to work from the blunt end of the needle. Go under the first stitch, take it over the stitch and then go under the next stitch.
3. In a similar fashion, take onto the next stitch, each time, whipping the previous stitches before proceeding onto the next stitch.
