To assist those who are new to the craft of hand embroidery I have categorised each stitch as to its degree of difficulty. An icon of a single pair of scissors indicates that the stitch is easy to work and you should not hesitate to try it. If you are new to learning needlework. If you see two scissors, the stitch requires more skill. Three scissors indicate that the stitch needs skill and practice.
If you normally have problems following embroidery illustrations the computer can help you. Copy and save the image. In a graphics program flip the image horizontally so that you have a mirror image. Work from this and you will find it makes sense and feels right!
