Double feather stitch is, again, a decorative stitch. It follows the same technique as feather stitch, but has branches on either sides. Once this technique is learnt, it is easy to make as many branches as you want to suit your stitch requirements.
I would work on five stitch lines A,B,C,D,E. You need to know the feather stitch to be able to do this stitch.
|Fig 1: Begin by bringing out the needle through C, putting it in through E, and again brining it back from D, to make the first ‘V’. Start to make the next ‘V’ by taking the needle in through B and bringing it out of C. Make sure that all the diagonal stitches are parallel to each other.||Fig 2: Once you pull out the thread and finish the second ‘V’, you begin teh procedure for the next one as shown in the picture.|
|Fig 3: You have finished one set of ‘V’s. Now you work back towards the right side in the same manner.||Fig 4: This illustation will help you to follow the stitches in sequence, beginning from 1.|
|Fig 5: A finished portion of double feather stitch looks like txhis.|
