I found the stitch for the first time in Rachael's blog and learnt it..
Sharon, both of these links show a stitching path similar to the one I was taught. I cannot see the Josephina Knot in Jackie's Elizabethan Stitches.
Me chiming in again - its a macrame knot too
and its also here as regular knot
and wikipedia has the knot listed as Carrick bend
so its more or less in the public domain but I still would not re-write the instructions legally its not an issue but I still think ethically it would be
Carol Anne - I agree dont pass on anything you are in doubt about and you have blogged about the course from Thistle threads so if anyone really wants it they can buy it. Technically if the stitch is an old stitch and the teacher does not own it but I would not do it as her research has bought it to light so ethically I feel its doubtful. I was wondering if it is in Elizabethan Stitches by Jacqui Carey - I dont have that book and I might have found a reason to buy it!
mmm..... had a counter thought some would say this is why some practices like stitches are not copyrightable as they run the risk of dying out. I still would not republish the information unless I found a second or third source for it
One stitch can be so delightful all by itself. It needs nothing else. If you can share instructions, Carol-Anne, I would like to have them too. I assume you would post them somewhere here?
Thank you all for your comments.
Grace - I have answered your question about Plaited Braid Stitch on Flickr.
Connie - no this stitch is made with a single strand of #371 gold wire and it is far less complicated than it looks.
Sharon - you are spot on.
I learnt this stitch as part of an on-line course. I'm never sure about the ethics of sharing what I have been taught on a course. This is a very old stitch so the tutor does not own the copy right to the stitch. However, she put a lot of time and effort into researching the stitch and preparing the teaching materials. Her students all paid for the information. Is it fair to the tutor or her students for me to pass on the information for free? On the other hand, what good is knowledge if you don't pass it on (obviously in my own words, the tutors notes and drawings are definitely copy right) Sharon, what is your view on this?
Carol-Anne. I have left you a comment and query in Flickr about these stitches. They are so interesting.
Beautiful but it looks complicated. Are these seed beads?
Beautiful Hugs Elaine
Exciting and beautiful would love to know how its done... erm is it worked in a plat with 2x3 and then threaded down the exit bottom holes?
