Spiderweb Stitch

Lynne had the brainstorm to actually CONTACT the designer of the socks- and we got our answer!

Kristin Nicholas  emailed us back and told us that the flower centers are the spiderweb stitch. How we would have been able to know that from the diagram, I don’t know. Unless you are an embroiderer, not an amateur craft-er.

So I Googled “spiderweb stitch” and lo and behold, the first page up is a tutorial  on embroidering knits by Kristin herself, as published in Interweave Knits. Was Vogue Knitting too cheap to pay for the tutorial as well as the design? Or maybe Vogue thinks that their readers are already well versed in embellishment. Either way, I like tutorials and diagrams in my knitting mags.

Mmmmm…. time for some coffee and embroidery and prayer!
