More details of knotted Cretan stitch sampler.
3.Knotted Cretan stitch is worked in two rows in the top. And the next one, two rows of knotted Cretan stitch worked one over the other.

4. in these three rows I tried individual knotted Cretan or half knotted Cretan stitches, they look like some other knot stitch[ I don’t remember the name]
the first row, the two rows of knotted Cretan stitches are facing away from each other, first I started working them very closely, though they looked great, I may not be able to decipher their working at a later date, so worked them with some space in between.
The second row, same as the previous row, except the starting and the ending point of the two rows of the stitches are the same .
The third row, I worked each knotted cretan stitch seperately.

This week’s stitch is knotted cretan stitch on the TAST 2012 stitch challenge by SharonB. I have not done this stitch before. This stitch was also a part of the earlier TAST challenge. Now is the chance for me to work on this stitch. I am planning to work this stitch on even weave fabric with cone thread[ similar to perle cotton].
1. The first three rows, I was familiarizing with this stitch, the only variations are the length taken for each stitch .crest-1 the first row, one part of the stitch is worked with varying heights. The next row, I grouped three knotted Cretan stitches together.
