The working of this stitch is on Pintangle.
This is also a simple stitch with lots of possibilities. In this piece I did not do much of experiments. An element of a traditional Indian design was chosen to work this stitch.
An outline with whipped and laced buttonhole stitch was also tried on this piece. It was started with buttonhole and straight stitches.
Straight lines were stitched to work the double lock stitch.
The side motif with two versions of double lock stitch worked in variegated perle cotton # 5.
Double lock stitch and some textured stitches inside the paisley.
Trials of alternating whipping and lacing. The first one on the left was chosen to work this piece.
The final result.
This pattern was not ideal to work variations of double lock stitch. But working on this, helped in experimenting a new way to work this buttonhole stitch outline. The lock stitch was instrumental in bringing out this idea, I suppose.
