Whipped blanket stitch main image

This stitch is formed of a line of blanket stitch with a thread whipped around the lower edge of the stitch.  The whipped thread can be the same as the blanket stitch thread, or a contrasting one.

This stitch is awaiting a sponsor.

Method

Use a tapestry needle (blunt needle) for whipping in order to avoid piercing the fabric or splitting the blanket stitch.
