Materials:

  • A small frame
  • A piece of cloth, at least 35 x 35 cms. (fabric must be very thin, linen)
  • A skein of yarn
  • A needle
  • A pair of scissors

Steps to Follow:

After placing the material in an appropriate frame, maintaining a work surface of at least 10 cm on each side, begin by pulling 6 threads, then leave 6 pull out 6 and leave 25.

We form the squares on the threads left by separating the threads by 5 in 5, putting the needle always in the center of the square.

We make an escapulario, stitch picking up the same 5 threads from around the square over the 6 threads left.

We finish with 4 spirit stiches on the 4 empty.

At the edge of the work will have a fine scallops.

Once completed, we will cut the scallop edge . After washing and ironing, we can enjoy an authentic canarian threadwork handkerchief.
