Letter "L" Needlepoint Stitch

By: Janet Perry from Nuts About Needlepoint

Needlepoint stitches are fun, especially when the charts are easy to follow!  Enjoy making the Letter "L" Needlepoint Stitch with directions from Nuts About Needlepoint.


This large curvy L is from Tink’s Gallery 24 alphabet in L Alphabets Fun and Fabulous (available in the needlepoint bookstore).


The background is done in Needlepoint Stem Stitch. This stitch is a variation of Alternating Diagonal Gobelin, with every other row accented with a line of Backstitches down the middle. This stitch is not a place for subtlety in choosing the accent color. It must be a different value, color, or thread. Otherwise the line of Backstitches disappears. It should also be a thinner thread. In this case I use Silk & Ivory as the main thread and two strands of a dark hot pink in Burmilana for the accents.  While the accent is a row of Backstitches, they do not have to be over one thread. In this case most of them are over two threads and some are over three.
