Easy to do, this beautiful eyelet needlepoint stitch would be a good addition to your stitch library. This tutorial from Ziva Needlepoint Designs demonstrates how to do it.
The eyelet stitch looks like a flower and adds some interesting dimension and movement to a design. As the author points out, it has a lacy feel to it.
I like to use various stitches in my needlepoint. It always adds a special touch to a pattern. In fact, in this article, you will find a free belt pattern that incorporates the eyelet stitch in it.
A needlepoint belt is a wonderful and unique way to jazz up your wardrobe and this design is particularly striking.
