Gobelin Stitch

The gobelin stitch is a type of tent stitch, whereby the thread is worked on canvas over two or more warp/weft threads and the length of the stitch is twice its width. It is sometimes worked as a raised form, which means that it is padded with a thick thread of cord. A padded gobelin stitch either completely conceals the padding or allows part of it to show in order to create and emphasise a geometric pattern.
