Today, I tried exploring this stitch some more.

5.Two rows of crested chain stitches are worked together in two ways, the second sample is also laced in this part of the sampler.

6.After working this stitch in a curve, I tried working this stitch on both sides of the chain stitches in the second row, the same theme is extended to work a zigzag version in the third row.

7.I worked twisted chain stitches in the first row, the basic chain stitch is worked between crested chain stitches in the second row.

8.Buttonhole stitches are worked over the crested chain stitch in the first sample, the crested chain is whipped totally and French knots are added in the second sample.

With this the stitch sampler is completed.

Working this stitch was not as difficult as I imagined, but working it neatly was a different story. The stitch looked better only in the last few rows. I liked the twisted chain version.
