Diamond Eyelet Stitch

The diamond eyelet stitch is technically worked like the Algerian eyelet stitch. Only, it works around a diamond outline and carries more spokes (straight stitches) for a filled effect. Again, this can be used wonderfully over even weave cloth to create greatly textured fillings.

I will be working within a diamond-shaped area to illustrate this stitch. This illustration shows working the straight stitches from the outside to the center. You can work the straight stitches from the center too.

Fig 1: Start by bringing up the needle from a corner of the diamond shape, point A. Take the needle in through the centre, that is, point B. Then, bring the needle out from C and again in through B, as shown. Fig 2: Keep up with this procedure to fill the entire diamond shape. Keep the number of straight stitches even, atleast twelve.
Fig 3: A finished diamond eyelet looks like this.
