Tent Stitch

The Tent Stich is also known as continental tent stitch, or canvas work and is a simple stitch, which is similar to a half stitch

The difference to a half stitch is that it uses more thread and creates a tougher, harder wearing stitch.

There are no vertical stitches in tent stitch and the top right of one stitch is connected via a long diagonal stitch to the bottom left of the next stitch.

The style is similar to a backstitch but the stitches are not in line and are all slanted in the same direction.

The stitch starts with the needle passing through the material from back through to front in the top right hand side.

A diagonal stitch is made by passing the needle from the front to the back of the material in the bottom left hand side.

Next the needle is pushed through on the next stitch to the right, at the top right hand corner, so starting the next stitch.

from the back the stitch looks like a long diagonal overlapping stitch. The back of a half cross would give vertical stitches.

When stitching an area, the next row can be stitched in reverse.

A variation of this stitch is the DIAGONAL TENT STITCH which is where the stitches are made diagonally across the Aida or Evenweave.

This is use to reduce the distortion of the canvas threads which is a characteristic of tent stitch Tent Stitch
