This stitch is similar to last week’s stitch, the working of which is on SharonB ‘s blog. I worked some samples today.

1.The first row is the stitch example given by SharonB. Keeping with basic idea of this stitch, the second row is worked in two colours. The third row is worked with single cable chain stitch left without buttonhole stitches in between alternating buttonholed cable chain stitches [Phew..] . Another variation of this stitch worked with two colours in the fourth row.

2.Long and short cable chain stitches are alternated in the first row. Alternate cable chain stitches are fully covered with buttonhole stitches in the second row. Zigzag cable chain stitches with alternating buttonhole stitches forms the third sample.
