Cashmere Checker Stitch Instructions & Diagram

You can see the diagram of this stitch below. 

  • We start by making a tent stitch at the starting point
  • Afterwards we make a stitch parallel to the first one, passing over two canvas intersections; then we make another identical stitch immediately below the previous one
  • To finish this block we make a tent stitch parallel to the third stitch, this will form a figure similar to a vertical rectangle
  • Subsequently, above, below, and to the sides of the first block, we make a second block of the same size with tent stitches only, a total of two tent stitches horizontally and three vertically
  • Keep in mind that when making the rectangle of tent stitches, the first rectangle should be at the top, bottom, and sides, so you will have an alternating pattern
