Norwich Stitch

AKA:   Waffle

Needs Thinking

Uses:  Islolated stitch, Buildings, Foliage, Clothes, Fields

Follow the numbers by coming up at 1 and back down at 2.  You will come back up at 2 and down at 4.  Continue to do so until you have come out at 27.  Before you place your needle at 28, weave the needle under the 21-22 bar.  This will give your stitch a continuous woven look.  


Norwich is great as a block of stitches as shown or as an isolated one.
