dark green yoke


The embroidery on this yoke was done for my niece, so I don’t have the picture of the completed tunic to show here. The other details of the embroidery-
The curves on the motifs are worked with back stitches in light green thread.

This type of patterns, where the small motifs are repeated, and more than two colours are used and we cannot work continuously, it is better to keep the stitches simple and the pattern small.
When we see the outcome ,it is well worth the effort.

The details of the green yoke continued.
Straight stitches are worked in peach thread beside the satin stitches.

More details on my next post.

I had this idea of doing a embroidery pattern with small motifs. The same motif is repeated throughout. It looks like a block print. A peach colour tunic material was available for this. A dark green colour fabric was chosen for the yoke.
The thread colours chosen were- medium and light green, red, and peach. Two strands of cotton skeins was used for the embroidery.
The stitches used were- chain stitch, satin stitch, straight stitches, back stitch, stem stitch and fly stitch.
Started with medium green thread, the neck line-
