A Tale of Two Stitches - Book 11
by Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn
In this book Jan and Jean show the wonderful effects that may be achieved using two of their favorite stitches: Sorbello and Lock stitch. The knotted Sorbello stitch is worked in thick yarns to produce a chunkier square block, and thinner fibers for a star like pattern. Layers of stitching create lifelike dimensional images. The flexible Lock stitch allows distortion, alteration and embellishment to build up exciting patterns. The Lock stitch is used with a felting technique to create a complete structure. It is hoped that some of the approaches suggested in this book might encourage you to try, revise and extend these fascinating stitches.
