Today I experimented two rows of scroll stitches together. I was not able to achieve a braided look as suggested by Sharon because my stitches are still not neat.

4. In the first two rows I worked scroll stitches rows one below the other, though in the second row, I looped the thread through the previous row. In the third row three scroll stitches set are worked in two levels and I tried replicating it again, a failure!

5.In these samples scroll stitch rows are facing each other. I worked from left to right and returned back in the first sample. After working the top row left to right, I worked the opposite .that is, from right to left in the second sample. And to my surprise found that, I could control this stitch much better this way. Hurray! In the third sample, after working two rows of scroll stitches apart in my way, a thread was laced through both rows.

6. In the first sample, the scroll stitch rows are facing away from each other. The same idea continues in the second sample which was later whipped with red thread. The last few stitches were not whipped to see the gap between two rows and how the whipping changed the look of the rows.
