I am working an a small project that calls for small areas of satin stitch
(in alternating directions) to simulate a woven basket. The chart calls for
DMC Flower thread and a flier stuck in the chart gives the 6 strand DMC
replacements and to use 2 strands.
Well - it looks AWFUL - so any thoughts on other things to try. I am
thinking of using a basketweave or a banded cross stitch, but will await
Truthfully, looking at the model on the cover, it doesn't look much better
with the flower thread. The two strands of DMC cover pretty well else where.
