BAS - Week 80 - Van Dyke Stitch



Van Dyke Stitch is another braided center stitch.  I have made my first attempt at it here on a leaf shape.  With a little more practice, I think this would be a great stitch to use for leaves and borders.  It is simpler than the Portuguese Braid Stitch featured earlier and works in a nice rhythm.

There is an excellent tutorial with very clear photos and instructions at Stitch School here.  Have fun!
