I am looking for a stitch made of loops on the surface that can be clipped to form “hair” on an animal like a horse’s mane, or a lion’s mane. I had the directions many years ago, but lost that information in a house fire, and have not been able to relocate the information. It begins with a tight loop and then you leave a loose loop on top of the surface to be clipped, followed by another tight loop, follower by another loose loop until you get the area covered. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated, even the name of the stitch would help me find directions, as I can’t remember the name either….
I can suggest you one stitch that can be good to make a horse’s mane like effect, and seems like the one you are talking about. It is the Turkey rug knot or the Ghiordes knot. I don’t have the tutorial for this stitch prepared yet, but you can always check other sources for the directions. This stitch can be done closely to create a row of long loops, which needs to be combed and trimmed to give a ‘hair’ effect.
Hope this information helps.
Sorry for the late response…for some reason, your comment reached me late.
How do you secure Colonial and French Knots so they don’t come undone?

Hi Dear Sarah
I am from Iran , and like your site so much , could you please write and learn us more about any kinds of Indian embroideries ?
I am sure other people from other cultures ( same me ) interested to know about them and like to learn how are Indian stitches and patterns ?
thnk you very much
Dear Sarah, I recently found your site and am so glad! What a lot of work you do for our benefit, you must love embroidery so much. I attach a picture of an embroidery I am making for a pillow front. I traced different patterns from other sources and made them into one design for my pillow. It was a lot of work and I dont think I want to draw my own design each time! Is there a way to buy all over chikankari designs and patterns? I want to embroider a sal for myself and cannot find embroidery designs to transfer to the fabric. Any help would be much appreciated.

Beautiful!!! Thank you for all your hard work!
Parabéns pela preciosidade do seu trabalho.
Muito obrigada por disponibilizar os pontos e a maneira de fazê-los. Você tem um coração generoso! Que Deus a proteja sempre! Abraço.
I really love your embroidery site. It has been extremely helpful. I would like to know if you have a book to purchase? My Grandmother taught me most of these stitches when I was a young girl and I would like to pass this on to my Grandchildren. I could print these out but would prefer to have you receive the benefits of your knowledge, time and efforts. Thank you so much. Lilly
It is really nice of you that you find value in passing hand embroidery lessons to your grandchildren.
It is also very kind of you that you thought of me as well!:)
I am in the process of making an ebook. If all goes well, it should be available in 6 months time…but it is hard to say that for sure as I have two little kids in the house with constant demands. So, just watch out for the announcement.
Any classes in Mumbai . I realy liked your skills.Your stitches are fabulous.I want to join your summer camp.
