I have to be honest that when I saw Oyster stitch for the first time, I wasn’t too keen on it. In fact, I cursed for having had to do another chain stitch. (I kind of pointless cursing as this IS voluntary and there ISN’T anyone breathing down my neck and forcing to do this). But we crafters are a weird bunch and I stuck with this.
The texture!!! I could keep running my hand over this for hours. If I was to make one of those sensory books, this stitch would be a front-runner to be featured there. The slightly loose structure gives a sense of coolness which is hard to describe but if you do stitch a sampler like this, you’ll know what I mean.
Till next time!
