Advent Calendar 2023 – Nativity Scene

The hands of all three Wise Men are embroidered with wrapped Back stitches (coton à broder No.25). It makes sense to wrap from the inside to the outside on the way to the fingertip,

to lay the thread around your fingertip

and embroider the downward stitches from the outside to the inside.

Turn again at the base of the finger.

In this way you can achieve well-formed individual fingers.

If the hands are shaped so that the fingers lie together, work Back stitches up to the base of a finger and wrap them on the way to the tip up to the vertex. Then continue working with Back stitches. In the end, all that remains to be wrapped is the thumb, fingertips and the side of the palm.
