Goose-Eye (Naversom)

Goose Eye

Goose-Eye Stitch (gåsögon) (for Naversom)

This stitch is used to produce the airy openings in the designs. It is worked over two groups of threads with a single thread. To create the open design it is always worked diagonally from left to right and from the lower edge to the upper. The stitch is done twice around the group of fabric threads to really define the area. As you can see, this stitch is pulled tight as you work it. The more tension you use, the larger the eye will be. A complete goose-eye stitch goes around four sets of threads.
