    one over one stitching

    Hi

    what do you find best for one over one and Gk or similar designs - tent stitch and back or complete each cross? My net project is going to be one over one

    My friend is stitching GK's Pea**** and Doves in a Garden one over one full cross on 28-count linen. Here is a link to a photo of her work.

    One of our other stitchers always stitched the tent stitch two over one on a 24-count congress cloth. It was before the website was revised so the photos don't show in her posts.

    Hope this helps somewhat!

    Thank you for that. I'm planning to go 2 over one full cross on 22 count fine ariosa, so i'm leaning towards full cross as i go, as i think the alternative would get too dense.

    You may want to do some test stitching on that 22-count first, Robert. The reason I say that is my first GK, 'Girl With a Pearl Earring' was on 20-count Lugana 2 over 1 and I found it quite tight and bulky. The final result was great, but I was really worried about it while I was stitching her. Since then I've switched to 18-count Davosa and love it. I guess it also depends on your tension. Good luck with whatever you choose, and let us know what you end up stitching on!

    The fabric has arrived. I have done some test stitching - 2 over one full cross, 2 over one tent stitch out half cross back and tent stitch. The first and second looked more or less the same excellent coverage, not bulky or tight. the tent stitch looked a bit sparse, as if it really needed 3 strands!!! not sure what to put the results done to. My tension must be right for the first two cases and its just the coverage that is a bit lacking for the third case. I did use a size 24 needle to work this, so that might be a factor along with my tension. I very pleased with the result and barring a major upset I will use this fabric for full coverage

    Post in the Extended SAL for the coming one. I normally post my 'before' and 'after' photos at the same time because it's easier to see the progress. I'm happy that you'll be joining in, Robert! We normally have more people participating, but one is in the midst of kitchen renovations, one has company for an extended period and others are absent for various reasons.
