Sorbello is a lovely knotted stitch based on a square and a favourite of mine, although it turned out to be new to a lot of our members. It can be worked in a regular manner, but much more fun is to distort it and pile it one on top of another using all sorts of threads to make a lovely crunchy texture. I found a left-hander on my table and impressed myself by showing her how to do the stitch left-handed - although I guess that is more a demonstration of how easy it is to work than of my prowess as a teacher!

The Sorbello stitches are done in fine cords, ribbons, chunky and fine threads.
