StTITCH OF THE MONTH
Woven Trellis Variation

woven trellis variation stitch
  We used this stitch in the same fiber/color.  For a different effect stitch the middle stitch in a contrasting color for a dramatic look or work it 
in a slightly darker (or lighter shade) for a subtle effect.  It's a bold background, use it with a simple design where there is a lot of background.  It also looks great for a woven basket, clothing or a parquet floor.
TIP OF THE MONTH
Yarn Length  
Stitch with a strand of yarn between 12"-18" in length.  Anything longer will tend  to knot and in some cases shred the fiber.  If you are using an exotic fiber, like silk, velvet or metallic, cut the lengths even shorter  to prevent fraying and  or weakening 
your thread.
