Sail #2

With multiples of the same item on a canvas, I find I number them from left to right and simply name the stitch with that fancy name plus its corresponding number.  Hence, we have "Sail #2."  I did a little research and determined it's really a Reverse Hungarian, though it will always be Sail #2 or 3-2-3 to me.


I admit to overuse of Woven Hungarian, so this is a great alternative for a small space where you want to add some contrasting finishes or colors.  The stitched sample on Instagram is the aforementioned Sail #2 in all of its sailing glory and uses Fyre Werks and DMC Floss (on 13-mesh).
