Mooshie Stitch Mondays: Cable Plait Stitch

Another stitch common to Mountmellick embroidery is the Cable Plait Stitch (aka Braid Stitch).

As always, Needle n' Thread has a great video tutorial for this stitch.

I drew two lines to help guide my stitching and practiced with two types of floss.

DMC floss on the left and #5 pearl cotton on the right.

I really like this stitch. It isn't too difficult to learn and I think it has great texture.

In my whitework project this week, I used part of this pattern I found on Pinterest.

Hi! I'm Michelle (aka Mooshie) and I've been stitching since 2007. I own more embroidery hoops than I will ever need and am a borderline hoarder of floss.

You can find me on my blog, MooshieStitch, Instagram, and on Etsy.
