ILLUSTRATION 223 (Slanting Stitch,
double stitch).--This stitch is worked like that described in No.
220; the cotton is not wound round the needle the first time in the
usual manner, but the needle is placed in the direction of the arrow,
above the cotton. Draw the cotton through as a loop; the stitch is
finished like the common double stitch.
ILLUSTRATION 224 (Cross Stitch).--This
stitch is worked like No. 223 on a foundation like No. 217, only
insert the needle through the two upper sides of a stitch.
Illustration 225 (Long Double).--For
this stitch wind the cotton round the needle, insert it into the back
part of a stitch, draw the cotton out as a loop, wind the cotton again
round the needle, and cast off together the two loops and the loop
formed by winding the cotton round the needle.
ILLUSTRATION 226 (Treble Stitch).--These
stitches are worked as has been described for the purl foundation
chain, No. 218. The treble stitches are worked on a foundation chain
or in the stitches of the preceding row.
ILLUSTRATION 227 (Long Treble).--These
are worked like treble stitches, only the cotton is wound twice round
the needle; the double
long treble (illustration 228) is worked by winding the cotton three
times round the needle. The loops formed by winding the cotton round
the needle are cast off one by one with one of the loops on the
needle. The two loops that remain at the end are cast off together
after winding the cotton round the needle.
ILLUSTRATION 229-231 (Cross Treble).--Illustration
229 shows this stitch completed; illustrations 230 and 231 show them
in the course of the work. Wind the cotton twice round the needle as
for a long treble, insert the needle into the stitch in which the
first half of the cross treble is to be worked, wind the cotton round
the needle, draw the cotton through as a loop, wind the cotton again
round the needle and cast off together with the same the loop on the
needle and the loop formed by throwing the cotton forward; you have
now 3 loops left on the needle, 1 of which has been formed by winding
the cotton round the needle; missing these, wind the cotton again
round the needle, miss the 2 next stitches of the foundation chain,
and draw a loop through the third stitch. You have now 5 loops on the
needle. Always cast off 2 loops at a time till only 1 loop remains on
the needle. Work 2 chain stitches (if you wish to have the stitches
more or less) slanting, work 1, 2, or 3 chain stitches, missing, of
course, the same number of foundation chain, work 1 treble stitch,
inserting the needle, as shown by the arrow on No. 231, into the 2
cross chain of the completed treble stitch.
