This week’s stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB is scroll stitch. Though I have come across this stitch on embroidery books, I have never tried this stitch. This challenge is giving me a chance to work this stitch. The tension and knotting are proving tricky at this stage.

The details of the samples-
1. These samples are trials of this stitch. The angle of the stitch in the first row, is downward towards left, in the second row, straight downwards and in the third row, downwards towards right.

2. I tried working this stitch with longer insertion and failed in the first row. Then I tried working this stitches closer by inserting in the next hole, in the second row, which needs some fine tuning. Then worked a row were the scroll stitches are alternatively apart and close. The double scroll stitches [closely worked] and single scroll stitches are alternated [sometimes forgotten!] in the fourth row.

3. This first row had to be detailed, otherwise I‘ll never be able to understand it! This is zigzag scroll stitch.in the second row, the stitches are worked at three levels to form a wave pattern. Detailing becomes important in the third row too. This is up and down scroll stitch, the stitches are slanted downwards and upwards alternatively.
