You can see "Spider Webs" on the Bloomsbury Gloves from Color By Kristin. They are the center of the flowers. (The book is available on my website or at your LYS). Notice how they look raised - almost like sculpture... I love this look!

They are playful and fun to do and will give your knitting a new sense of adventure and style! And now I present to you a video tutorial on how to make a "spider web." I'm hoping that by having these videos available to you, you will be more adventuresome at adding embroidery to your knits. I teach these techniques at workshops. This stitch is usually the technique the students enjoy doing most! Give it a try! The video is also available on YouTube here.
