Gobelin Stitch

Gobelin stitch has good area coverage and is often used to fill in block colour.

It consists of rows of long vertical stitches which overlap and the finished effect is like a tapestry
Care should be made not to pull this stitch too tight as this will distort the neatness of the finishes area. Source netstich

The long stitches should be worked over a number of canvas threads.

The distance between the stitches should be close to the thickness of the thread as possible. This is easier on evenweave than Aida.

If the gap between the stitches is larger than the thickness of the thread the coverage is less dense but this will still be fine as long as the gap is not too large.

To start, stitch a long straight stitch over a number of rows of your canvas. Be careful to lay the stitch flat and not to tug at the canvas.

Work along the row, leaving enough room between the stitches to interlock with the next row.

On the last stitch bring the needle through to the front of the canvas in the position to start the interlocking row of stitches.

Work the next row in the opposite direction, filling the gaps above to half way up the gap. This will leave half gaps at the bottom of this row.

Continue with the rows, half filling the gaps left in the previous rows.

Another Type of this stitch is the SLANTED GOBELIN STITCH, which follows the same method except the stitches and rows are worked at 45 degrees. Gobelin Stitch
