Definition of Swiss darning in English:
A technique in which coloured stitches are sewn on to knitted garments to make patterns or motifs that seem to have been knitted.
- Or you could decide to make a raised feature from the Swiss darning and go for that slightly puffy look.
- Here are some rows of horizontal and one row of vertical Swiss darning on a swatch I knitted as well as a little bit of cross stitch.
- Added on embellishment such as peasant wool embroidery and Swiss darning made a comeback at various times in the early 90s and very late 90s.
