This week on TAST 2016 challenge we have this decorative edge. It is an easy stitch to work. The working of the stitch is on Pintangle.
This sampler was started yesterday.
This time I decided to work the samples on a paisley design. The first sample is fancy bobbin buttonhole wheels on the outline worked in three strands of cotton skein and two rows of this stitch with perle cotton inside the paisley. The stitch does not look ornamental with three strands of cotton skein.
This paisley is outlined with this stitch in six strands of cotton skein. This could be better.
After working on these two samples yesterday, this morning started on the next sample. This sample is not fancy bobbin edging, but knotted buttonhole stitch. I noticed this mistake after working two samples.
May be it will be better to imagine this as fancy bobbin edging. The length of the stitches are smaller, the centre is worked in alternatively worked butthole stitches similar to feather stitch.
I did not realize the mistake even on this sample.
The outline is worked in two colours alternatively, a variation of alternatively worked closed and basic buttonhole is worked inside the outline, next row of this stitch is worked in the spaces left by the earlier row. The centre line in yellow was worked by passing underneath the earlier row. These two samples are worked in six strands of cotton skeins.
The inner curves are worked in this fancy bobbin edging with six strands of cotton skein. The outline is worked in perle cotton and whipped with cotton skein.
The centre is filled with fancy bobbin edging, similar to buttonhole filling stitch. The scalloped outline is worked in stranded cotton. The paisley outline is worked in polyester thread. The idea for this fancy bobbin edging is crossed buttonhole stitch.
Hoping to work on rest of the design tomorrow.
