I have not been working on TAST challenge stitches for the past few weeks. This week’s stitch is fern stitch, the working of which is on SharonB’s pintangle.
1. Started with the basic fern stitch in the first sample, the side straight stitches are too vertical in this sample. the second sample is better, the side straight stitches are long and short alternatively in the third sample. the straight stitches on the top are shorter than the ones at the bottom in the fourth sample.
2.The fern stitches are close and farther alternatively in the first sample. The fern stitches are worked very close in the second sample. Four rows of fern stitches form the third sample. Three rows of fern stitches worked facing each other in the fifth sample.
