OF THE MONTH
Skip Tent Stitch
The background of this mini sock from
Tapestry Tent's 12 Days of Christmas series
uses the Skip Tent Stitch. Since the design is painted on brown canvas and the stitcher used a similar color thread the effect is a lacy, delicate background. Using a lighter or darker thread color from the painted color being stitched over (using Skip Tent Stitch) can create subtle to dramatic results.
