77. Pistil Stitch

Pistil Stitch is a nice little stitch, a French Knot with a tail. Easy to learn if you already know French Knot.

The tail is very long so I coached it down.

74. Buttonholed Cable Chain Stitch

Buttonholed Cable Chain Stitch looks more complicated than it is. On a foundation of Cable Chain Stitch you wrap Buttenhole stitch around it. It is slow so take your time.

73. Algerian Eye Stitch

I love most stitches except this one, Algerian Eye Stitch. I don’t know why. It is impossible to make this stitch fit an irregular form as a flower motif. Here is my attempt anyway.
