The 46th week stitch of the TAST 2012 stitch challenge by SharonB is checkered chain or magic chain. Earlier in this challenge, when chain stitch was announced, I chose four types of chain stitches from the earlier TAST challenges. This stitch was one of them.
This time around , I thought of working this stitch on a design . five colour combinations were used to work this sampler. The first colour- combination was deep green and variegated green thread.
