TAST: arrowhead stitch



The TAST stitch of this week is the arrowhead stitch. Perfect for grasses.


I started with the ear: arrowhead stitches changing direction. The thread is Kreinik #8.


The leaves are also arrowhead stitches. The stem is in stem stitch.

Completed bunch of grass. A little row of french knots represent an ear bud.

  6. Like so many you have seen the potential of the stitch for 'drawing a picture' and created grass. I like that soft curvy look you have managed - after all it IS a sharp stitch. This will be another stunning block for sure.
