Common Hand-Embroidery StitchesHere�’s a visual guide to some of the most common hand-embroidery

stitches found in quilts and other sewing projects. Pattern instructions

usually tell you what type of thread to use, but if you�’re venturing out on

your own, use embroidery oss or pearl cotton with a wide-eye embroi-

dery needle. Embroidery oss is usually split, with only two or three

strands used at a time. Use more strands for a heavier look. Pearl cotton

comes in di erent weights �– 3, 5, 8, and 12 �– with the lowest number

indicating the heaviest thread.
