Huck work/ Swedish Weaving///my sister who just passed at the tender age of 57 made some of these as a handfasting gift for me.

Round Bargello stitch: If you have a large Santa, use this stitch for his beard. It could also be used for swirling snow. If you are going to use it for snow use Flair or Frosty Rays.

ROUND BARGELLO-jULY 21 Love this stitch. You will also see it called Interlocking Chevrons and Silly Stitch. It's a form of Bargello. I am using the beautiful stitch right now on a canvas.

If working as cross stitch without pulled threads, could make a Colonial knot where the "holes " are. See thread crafts board.
