Elizabeth Stitch (Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL 2021 – Part 5)

February 5, 2021

This week’s stitch is the Elizabeth Stitch! I love this beautiful stitch and the design it creates. I’ve used this stitch for the Elizabeth Beanie. I think it would be beautiful for a baby blanket!

Scrapghan Tips

· If you’re having trouble getting the sizing right, remember that it’s easier to adjust a square that’s too small than one that’s too big.

· If a square comes out too small you can add an additional round for the border, go up a hook size, and/or steam block and stretch the square to the size you want.

· The edges might curl. This can be fixed with some steam blocking. It won’t be noticeable after sewing.

· Each square has at least 2 rounds of border. For the last round of the border I used the same color for each square (the dark gray). This is the same color used for the sewing.

· The squares will be released in sewing order, starting with the bottom left. I left a long end for sewing on each of the squares. The long end is approximately twice the length of one side.

· Each square does not need the same number of stitches for the border.
