Knockdown stitches are stitched over nappy fabrics to hold down the nap so the stitches don't sink in and get buried by the nap.

I too like doing the applique Carolyn, then you do not have all the stitching showing on the back side. But then, I have no knockdown stitching designs.

Your digitizing skills are amazing! I had to look twice to see if this was an applique or not. You've created a fabulous design and it looks just perfect on this towel! Well created!

Now that was a smart thing to do. Sometimes you want an applique and sometimes you don't.

I do not like the knock-down stitches some software offer, your fill stitch is far more beautiful. And the frame is lovely.
I have been using a form of what's often called embossing for years and it makes personalising towels so much easier - and with a nice frame much more elegant as well.

Thank you, Martine...I do not particularly care for the standard knockdown stitches either....I use to call them embossing, but the term seems to have changed in the past year or so...now everyone seems to refer to them as knockdown...

mops by mops 14 Jan 2019

What knockdown stitches I've seen are usually a 45 degree medium density fill, done automatically by the software. What used to be called embossing looks like cross hatched stitching, as in a simple FSL base. And cross hatch works well to tame a pile of fleece or towels as well. So what 's in a name. Anyway, your fantasy stitch looks terrific.

I too create my own knockdowns.......I didn't know there was software out there that creates them.......

This is beautiful and not your usual knock down stitching I have seen on other designs. What software are you using now--it is just so elegant.

Thanks, Patti....It is not your "normal" knockdown stitch...this was a "stitch" that I digitized and then made it into a motif that would become the knockdown stitch pattern. I use both Janome Digitizer and Floriani for most of the work I do...I also have Palette Next (PE-9) but I do not care for it at all...

peafarm by peafarm 17 Jan 2019

I remembered you said you did not care for PE software. I think at one time you had Embird or there was a discussion about that one. Your created stitch knock down is gorgeous. Much better than ones I've seen out in the marketplace.
