This is the third variety of lock stitch, the working of which is on Pintangle.
This was the 131st week stitch. This sampler was started with basic straight stitch variations. The beaded lock stitch on them is started today.
The straight stitches do not have any gaps and the two rows of beaded lock stitches are worked on alternate straight stitches, which tilts this stitch to the left. All the lock stitches are beaded in the second sample. Two beads are worked in this single row in the third sample. Two rows of short straight stitches were worked one below the other and the beaded lock stitches were worked on them in the fourth sample. This variation need to be written down before it slips the mind! The straight stitches are worked in a curved pattern which has created this curved beaded lock stitch in the fifth sample.
The first two samples have straight stitches in varying heights in a pattern, it was not pretty to work the lock stitches on varying heights, so beads were added at the end of the straight stitches in the first sample and even that was not done in the second sample. Learnt this lesson. Alternate lock stitches are beaded in the third and fourth samples in two ways.
