This week’s zigzag chain stitch is very simple and decorative stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB. I have often tried zigzag version of possible stitches on my samplers. Today I did some samples on this sampler.

2.Another pattern is worked with zigzag chain stitch in the first row. Two rows of the stitch is worked in the second sample. One chain stitch is straight and next one is worked at angle in the third row, the chains kept slipping with this thread here, so the method is not seen clearly.

3.v-shaped chains are worked in the first row. Two rows of zigzag chain stitches are worked to form diamonds in the second sample. V-shaped chain stitches are worked one after another in the last row.
