Hungarian Stitch and Variations

Hungarian Stitch, like Mosaic Stitch, it made from three stitches in graduated sizes. The difference is that Hungarian is worked vertically, rather than diagonally.

This easy-to-work stitch has a variety of variations, which can all be used to add pretty textured fills to any shape in your needlepoint project. Many of the stitches can be worked in two or more colors.

If you’re looking to add some geometric elements to your project, Hungarian stitch does have a rather pronounced striped effect when worked in multiple colors.
