Compensation 101:  The Art of Partial Stitches for Needlepoint

When working on needlepoint canvas, we will come across areas which the stitch will not cover the remaining section. Continuous lines, columns or patterns are needed. To accomplish this, you need compensated stitches.

 

This book will explain how to incorporate lovely stitches on your canvas. You will learn how to create partial straight, diagonal, oblique, cross and tied stitches. Along with these, eyelets, numbered and petit point are also explained. No book will be complete without teaching you how to craft challenging stitches.

 

"Compensation 101: The Art of Partial Stitches for Needlepoint" also features 20 stitches and templates for practice.
