Scoubidou Quad Stitch

The Quad Stitch is another more advanced stitch due to the intricate detail it holds, don't worry though; it isn't impossible! Get to know the Brick Stitch and Superbrick Stitch first and you'll fly through it!

You will need:

  • Four strands of Scoubidou all the same length.
  • Tip: Use different colour Scooby Strings so you can differentiate between the strands.

    Starting Stitch

    1. This stitch is extremely hard to start therefore we highly recommend using a pencil to begin with. 2. Place two strands next to the pencil horizontally (blue and red) and the other two (black and white) vertically under the pencil and the other two strands. 3. Tie the black and white scoubi strands in a knot around the pencil and the other two scoubidous.

    4. Turn the pencil upright and pick up the blue scoubidou closest to you and flip it to the other side. 5. Then grab the other end of the blue scoubidou and flip it towards you so the loops sit next to each other. 6. Then pick up the red scooby dou closest to you and again, flip it to the other side.

    7. Now grab the other end of the red scooby and flip it towards you so you have four loops. 8. Secure the loops by pinching with your thumb, then pick up the left scoubi string next to you (white) and take it over the first loop, under the second, over the third and finally over the fourth. 9. Then pick up the right scoubidou closest to you (black) and take it over the first loop, under the second, over the third and under the fourth.

    16. Take one of the scoubidou ends closest to you (we've used blue) and flip it over to the other side to create your first loop. 17. Then pick up the other end of that scoubidou and flip it towards you, creating a second loop. 18. Then pick up the other scoubidou closest to you (red) and flip it over to the other side creating a third loop.
