TAST 73 - Portuguese Stem Stitch

This week’s Take a Stitch Tuesday stitch on Sharon B’s Pintangle blog is the Portuguese Stem Stitch. I tried it out with perle #5 (blue), perle #8 (green), Week’s Dye Works crewel wool (orange), and perle #12 (yellow). It seems like a pretty straight forward stitch, but somehow, mine didn’t come out very even.  I need more practice!


  1. Wow! Your stitching is great! Mine does not look at all like this! I better do some more practicing!

  2. I, too, have to get a move on! Is this a troublesome stitch? Sharon said a thread with a good twist would make the work easier...
