Jessicas – the stitch some of us love, and some us of love to hate! This twisty stitch is attributed to Jean Hilton, and can be any size and shape. Need a circle? Jessica! Need a triangle? Again, Jessica! Need a square or rectangle or parallelogram? Jessica!  Mostly Jessicas examines the structure of this stitch so you can stitch with ease and confidence, no matter what size, shape or thread. This project has round, square, triangle, rhombus, parallelogram, star and diamond Jessicas, with layered Jessicas and partially layered Jessicas. Smyrnas, Rhodes, waffles and eyelets complete the design.
