Woven Trellis Stitch is a great stitch that is just perfect for filling any pattern. The way it is woven, this stitch gives a very good dimension to any design. Check the spider web stitch for another variation of this weaving stitches family.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED?
- Any fabric.
- Embroidery hoop, 15cm (6″) (Bigger if you are working on a larger design)
- Tapestry needle
- Embroidery thread (I have used the pearl cotton floss for this tutorial)
How many strands of floss do you need for making the woven trellis stitch?
Since I have used the pearl cotton floss, I have taken double floss for it. But if you take general embroidery floss for the pattern, then you can start with 3 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the trellis Stitch
1. Start by making a straight stitch from point A to Point B at desired length.
2. Make another straight stitch from point C to Point D.
3. Finally, we will make the third straight stitch by bringing the needle up at point E.
4. Your straight lines are ready to make the trellis stitch now.
5. Bring the needle up at the bottom of the first stitch. Pull the thread up.
6. Weave the needle around the stitches by taking one up and one down, alternating between the straight stitches.
7. Continue weaving around the stitches in a similar way.
8. Once your weaving is completed take down the needle and secure the knot.
Tips for working the trellis stitch
- You can work this stitch with as many straight lines as you please.
- The basic tip is to weave the needle one above the other stitch. That is, alternating the stitches by bringing one up and one down.
