I have not found any good stitches beginning with Y, so what to do?
Why, make a Y, of course!
We will be practicing joined-up writing by stitching a small 'y'!
Exit the needle where you want the curly loop.
You have written a 'y'.
See how I have practiced with blue 'ink' on my Aida sampler.
Fill your fountain pen with blue, or green, ink and practice your calligraphy ys.
Or rather thread the needle and start stitching.
