The long rope stitch is combined with short rope stitch in the first row. The needle was inserted further in the line to form a shorter version of rope stitch, this is combined with basic rope stitch in the second row. Rope stitches are whipped and laced in the next two rows. I tried a wider version of the stitch by inserting the needle beside the previous stitch in the line in the fifth row. The detail-

I am working on rope stitch sampler now. I am still in the thinking stage of the hussif project. I have started another tunic project. This time there are only borders, the design is based on ethnic Indian embroidery . It has kutch work motifs on border. A time consuming project.
