Monogram for Hand Embroidery: Celtic Y


Amazon Books

Coming close here to the finish of the Celtic Monograms for Hand Embroidery series, here is the letter Y. Only one more to go!!!

If you would like suggestions for stitching these monograms, including what stitches and threads to use, please visit the “A” in this alphabet. There, you’ll find some more detail on the monograms. You’ll also see how the inside areas between the loose knotwork is supposed to be shaded with a kind of “stippled” effect (easy to accomplish using seed stitch or French knots).

Here’s the small Y:
