Stitch Details


Parisian Stitch Instructions & Diagram

You can see the diagram of this stitch below. 
  • Secure your thread on the backside of the canvas by making a small knot.
  • Insert the needle from the back of the canvas to the front where you want to start to stitch.
  • Insert the needle from the back of the canvas to the front where you want to start stitching.
  • Move the needle vertically upwards, skipping a hole in the canvas, and insert the needle from front to back at the next intersection of the canvas.
  • Bring the needle back down from the back of the canvas and insert it into the lower right intersection immediately diagonal to the first stitch.
  • Move the needle up to the upper right intersection to the second stitch. This will cause the first stitch to skip 1 row and the second stitch to skip 3 rows.
  • Repeat the process as many times as necessary.
