Experiment first: get an index card, floss up your needle, and pull a few stitches, seeing how you like it. It will be a different feel, for sure, but before you declare it too difficult, here are some things you can do to make it easier. Take a thumbtack and prick the holes you want to stitch first, or pass your needle completely through each point you want to stitch (from front to back so the raised paper is at the backside of your card), perforating the design. This will take away the mystery of where your needle should come up, and make the actual stitching easy and fun.
Repeat. surface blanket 2 1 3 Blanket: Surface You can also work this as a surface stitch, exactly as above (keeping your needle on top of the fabric), or you can do it the simple, lazy way. I say it’s okay. Just take a diagonal stitch (1–2) and when you come up at 3, pull the previous stitch down at a right angle and repeat along your pattern line. Looks exactly the same, and is a good cheat for you stabbing stitchers out there, like me. 66 curved and fan blanket Curved Blanket 5 1-3 4-2-6 Blanket: Fan A blanket stitch looks especially pretty along the edge of scalloped fabrics.
Powdered chalks are available specifically for doing this. Using a fixative of some sort might be necessary (so your design doesn’t brush off easily). Yes, it’s messy and probably not the method you’ll be using most of the time, but it’s good to have options! An easier alternative to stamping loose chalk over a pricked design is to lay carbon transfer paper against the fabric you’ll be stitching (carbon side to the stitching surface), and underneath the design you’ll be pricking. When your pin pushes through the design and the carbon at the same time, it will leave a small carbon dot on the ground you’ll be stitching.
