This week’s stitch is sailor stitch on the TAST 2013 stitch challenge by SharonB. This stitch is buttonhole stitch and chain stitch worked one after another. A simple stitch, I may think of this combination while working buttonhole stitch sampler but do not know this can be a separate stitch . I started this sampler today-

Now for the details of the samples, the stiches are worked with cone threads.
1. After working the basic sailor stitch in the first row, the buttonhole stitches are worked short and long in the respective second and third rows.

2.The chain stitches are worked long and short in the first row, the buttonhole stitches are worked long and short in the second row. The sailor stitch is worked zigzag in the third row, I like this variation.

3.The sailor stitch is worked in a curve in the first row. The buttonhole stitches are worked in an angle in the second row. The buttonhole stitches are worked on both sides of the chain stitch in the third row, this variation could be ideal for embroidering worms! LOL!
???????????????????????????????
4.Alternate chain stitches are missed in the first row. Alternate buttonhole stitches are missed in the second row.
