This needlepoint tutorial shows how you can stitch the harlequin pattern. We will be making elongated diamonds or lozenges. The pattern is very simple and easy.
Start with a small straight stitch as shown below.
The height of the stitches will continue to increase till we have 5 stitches.
Now, we will start decreasing the height of the stitches.
Note: The 5th and the 6th stitch will be the same height.
One diamond is done.
Starting the next diamond.
This pattern looks good if more than one color is used.
