You Had Me at …Woof!

Working with over-dyed floss is always fun – the trick is to complete both legs of each stitch as you go, so the colour changes flow through the design. The direction you stitch (horizontal or vertical) can change the entire look of a piece! In this design and the one featured in our next issue (Spring 2015) Jo Gatenby used floss colours that remind us of the animals they represent – and how cute is that paw print fabric?
Three strands of floss are recommended for this design (3X), based on a 14ct stitch being used. This is a personal preference of the designer because of the wonderful coverage provided by using three strands.
