I ❤ embroidery . . . Sarah's Step by step Tutorial- The diamond eyelet stitch is technically worked like the algerian eye stitch. Only, it works around a diamond outline, & carries more spokes (straight stitches) for a filled effect. Again, this can be used wonderfully over even weave cloth to create great textured fillings. This diamond shaped illustration shows working the straight stitches from the outside to the centre. You can work the straight stitches from the centre too.
