This week’s stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB is diamond stitch. I had attempted it during the previous TAST challenge. I couldn’t make a neat work of the stitches then, and this struggle is continuing in this sampler too.
The sampler so far-

1.I started the first row to try this stitch first and found that learning this stitch is an ongoing process. LOL! I tried working alternate diamonds [!] nearer to each other in the second row. Then thought working all the four knots together could be the problem and tried three knots in the third row.

2.Smaller version of diamonds are worked in the first row, two rows of diamond stitches are worked together in the second row. Small and large diamonds are alternated in the third row. And the diamond stitches are worked with varying heights in the fourth row.

I’ll try some stitch combinations, while practicing this stitch.
