Rosette Stitch is a part of the chain stitch family. But, unlike the original chain stitch, these chains will lie next to each other in a horizontal position. Typically, a chain stitch will be worked vertically.
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 Plaited Fly 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 3 strands for making this stitch.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the Rosette Stitch
1. Start by bringing the thread up at point A. Insert the needle again from point A to point B. Loop the thread from under the needle as shown above.
2. Pull the thread up and insert the needle at the knot formed at the bottom of the stitch without piercing the fabric.
3. Pull the thread.
4. Keep working in a similar fashion till the end of the pattern.
