37 Flower Stitches for Needlepoint [With Diagrams]

37 Flower Stitches

Any one of these flower stitches can be used on their own, or for an overall pattern.  Used in groups, they can become an impressive background filler.


An excellent stitch to use up small bits of leftover yarn.  They can also serve to vary the texture in a design.  Be careful in working some of these stitches as some are prone to snagging.
