Ray Stitch

Also known as: Fan stitch, Fancy fan, Straight Fan

This tutorial is an illustration, of many, on how a few straight stitches can be combined to form patterns to use for embroidery.

This stitch uses eight straight stitches to form a fan-like pattern.

Fig 1: Begin by making the leg of the β€˜fan’, by doing a straight stitch A-B. Fig 2: Now, make the sitches C-B, D-B, E-B, as shown.
Fig 3: Continue making these straight stitches in a slanting manner with B as the centre point. The ray or fan effect begins to take shape. Fig 4: A completed ray stitch would look like this.
