Double cast-on stitch is a Brazilian embroidery stitch.2 strands of thread are used to wrap around the needle, one on the left, the other on the right.The loops are done alternately between left and right.Although Brazilian embroidery is done with special threads, I normally use Anchor Pearl Cotton no:8 thread or even the six strand embroidery floss.Here are the methods to make double cast-on stitch:
2.Bring up the needle atA.Pull through.
3.Go down at B.Without pulling through, come back at A or to a point close to A.
4.Place one thread on the left of the needle and the other one on the right.
9.Hold the loops and carefully pull the remaining threads.At this point, you can pull both threads separately.Make sure they don't become tangled when being pulled through.
This stitch can be used to make flower petals and leaves.
