Braid Stitch

Braid Stitch is also known as Gordian Knot Stitch. This textured border stitch works well on curves and with a heavy thread such as cotton perle. Work from right to left and make sure that you form the loops properly as shown, with the left side of the loop laid over the right side.

Step 1. Come up at A. Make loop on fabric as shown, then go down at B through center of loop. Come up at C, with thread under needle point.

Step 2. Pull thread through. Then loop thread as in Step 1. go down at D and come up at E as shown to complete second stitch. Repeat to continue along row.
