Pariser Stitch is a simple and easy stitch can be easily mistaken for blanket stitch. Though it looks similar, the working of this stitch is very different from it.
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 Pariser 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 of floss for this design.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the Pariser Stitch
1. Start by bringing the thread up at point A. Then, insert from point B to point C. Note that a straight stitch would have formed when you pull the thread up.
2. Again, take the needle to point B and insert diagonally at point D.
3. Next, take the needle from point C again to point E. Continue working in a similar fashion for the rest of the pattern.
