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 ‘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.|
