Sampler broderie suisse, 26x24 cm
The "broderie suisse" or "chicken scratch" as this technique is known in the States, needs for a specific checked fabric on which different stitches are used: double cross-stitch, running stitch and circle stitch. In the chart these stitches are all well explained by instructions and pictures. The most suitable thread for this type of embroidery is the white perlé, 5 or 8 (also Restors d'Alsace nr. 8 can be employed) according to the dimensions of the fabric check. This embroidery fits all stitchers, from experts to newcomers!
