This week’s stitch on TAST 2012 stitch challenge by SharonB is up and down buttonhole stitch. I had not done this stitch on the previous TAST challenge, starting late on that challenge. It is a good thing for me that, this stitch is part of the present challenge.
Though I have not done this stitch before, working earlier on up and down feather stitch is helping me here. The details-
1.I started with the basic up and down buttonhole stitch in the first row, the second row is the longer version of the stitch.


2. Alternating between long and short version of the stitch in the first row, the same stitch worked in varying heights.


3. in this row, the up and down buttonhole stitches are worked at a angle. The second row is the combination of the basic stitch with the angled version.
