Yet another Stitch Sunday. As promised, this Stitch Sunday shows another chain stitch variant. It is based on reverse chain stitch.
It can be used for wide, decorative lines. Do not space the chain links too closely.
Start with a little tack down stitch, and form the first chain link just like in reverse chain stitch.
Next, work jet another, of course bigger chain link into the tacking stitch.
The next chain stitch link is worked into the chain stitch before the last.
The rest of the line is worked the same. Work reverse chain stitches, always hanging the next chain link in the the one before the last.
I missed chevron stitch and detatched chain stitch because my sampler went missing and I couldn’t quite bring myself to start a new one. So I found the old one again – under the sofa. Can you spell freudian slip?
I’m still not too happy about the background but challenges are about challenging oneself right? So I stitched on.
This time’s TAST stitch is chain stitch. Chain stitch is a a stitch I’m using a lot, but it doesn’t really inspire me. I use it as a plain filling stitch or line stitch, you do need Those either.
This week’s TAST is chain stitch.es I’m showing an old sample again. Don’t have as much time for this as I would like. Just enjoy the eye candy.
