Arrow Head Stitch

This stitch can be easily done to make a variety of effects. As the name suggests, two straight stitches are connected to form an arrow shape. A series of such arrows can create nice looking borders or can be creatively used in pattern designing. These arrows can be used horizontally to form easy zig-zag patterns too. It can also take on curves pretty well.

You need to know the straight stitch to be able to continue. This stitch will be illustrated between 3 parallel curved stitch lines- A, B, C.

Fig 1: Start by bringing out the needle through a point in A. Take the needle at an angle through a point in B. Fig 2: Now, bring the needle out through a point in C and back to the point in B. This makes an arrow. Continue this process in a vertical manner.
Fig 3: A row of arrow head stitch looks like this. Fig 4: Arrow head stitch can also be made horizontally. Stitch A-B, C- B. Then, stitch C-D, E-D. And so on…
