Scroll Stitch is a beautiful stitch that would work great for filling any embroidery pattern. You might feel that this looks very similar to the coral stitch but yet this is very different in it’s working.
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 Scroll 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 Scroll Stitch
1. We will work this stitch on a curved line. Start by bringing the thread up at point A from beneath the fabric. Take a small stitch on the sides of the line at the desired distance from point B to point C.
2. Wrap the thread around the needle as shown in the picture above. Pull the needle up to form a knot.
3. Continue working in a similar fashion until the end of the pattern.
Tips for working the Scroll Stitch
- Do not pull the thread too tightly.
- Make a very small stitch on the sides of the stitches.
What is this stitch used for?
- This stitch can be used as a border design or for filling any patterns.
