Vandyke stitch is an attractive filling stitch often used for leaf shapes. It can also be worked as a border.


  • Bring the thread through at (A).
  • Take a small horizontal stitch at (B) and insert the needle at (C).
  • Bring the thread through at (D).
  • Without piercing the fabric, pass the needle under the crossed threads at (B) and insert the needle at (E).
  • Do not pull the stitches too tightly, otherwise the regularity of the center braid will be lost.
