Jessicas – either dreaded or beloved, this “twisty” stitch can inspire fear or delight! Mostly Jessicas thoroughly investigates this stitch in many sizes and shapes, and can replace dread with delight.

Teaching Objectives:

  • Explore several sizes and shapes of Jessica stitches
  • Encourage stitchers to develop a natural stitching rhythm without relying heavily on stitch diagrams
  • Promote ease and confidence when stitching Jessica stitches
  • Recommended for basic to intermediate stitchers

Mostly Jessicas explores this “twisty” stitch developed by Jean Hilton. Stitchers will create round Jessicas in several sizes, triangular, square, rhombus, star, layered and partially layered Jessicas, and complete the project with Smyrnas, Rhodes, eyelets and waffle stitches.

In addition to the Bold color way in the large picture, Mostly Jessicas is available in three additional color ways:  Grayscale – Pewter canvas with grays to black threads with red accents; Monochromatic – Eggshell canvas with beiges to browns threads (partially pictured), and Pastel – Antique Blue canvas with pastel blues, yellows, lavenders and pinks.

Mostly Jessicas is a companion to Fandango, Mostly Amadeus, Mostly Crescents, Mostly Walnetos and Mostly Herringbones.
