catchup on TAST

I’m sorry, that was a long time without posts. The last two weeks were exeptionally busy, 3 presentations to do in the first week, one more in the next. I also had a nasty cold, so I didn’t get much done.

Well, here are my feeble doodles for linked double chain and reversed buttonhole bar, number 40 and 39 in the tast challenge.

The two green linear rows are self-explanatory. The weel in the first picture was made with the closed side of the buttonhole stitch worked along a little circle inside the big one, and two rows of buttonhole stitches worked over them, the outer one in a much thicker thread. For the circle in the second picture, a buttonhole weel was worked, and the additional buttonhole stitches were added in a spiral from the outside to the center of the circle.

This was just some doodling on a leftover scrap of fabric, following the fabric patern. The fabric is very stretchy, that made me reluctant to use it for a real project.
