Jus Stitch & Variation

Needs Thinking

Uses:  Clothes, Borders, Rolling Hills

To stitch Jus, begin on the left-hand side of the canvas, making a series of upside-down V’s, all the way to the end of the row.  (blue lines) Then, make the next row of upright V’s, and continue stitching rows in this way until you have filled the area.  Once the area has been filled, you are ready to stitch the straight, perpendicular lines.  (also blue)  The last portion of this stitch is the slashed cross.  (blue/green)   A cotton thread has been used in the sample.

Jus Variation

To stitch Jus Variation, work like you did with Jus but the the slashed cross has been omitted.
