The working of this week’s TAST challenge stitch is on SharonB’s blog. This week I am trying to combine the colour and texture study of this stitch on my piece. For this parallel lines are drawn on the fabric.
Starting in variegated thread [polyester] the bullion Vandyke stitch worked as shown on Sharon’s blog. The long and short version is alternated in shaded orange thread [perle]. Basic Vandyke stitch and bullion Vandyke stitch are alternated in light green wool.
Single bullion Vandyke stitches are worked in cotton skein in two shades of green. Set of three Vandyke stitches are worked in copper polyester thread.
