I am still in India. While working on the kutchwork design on orange and yellow tunic, this Q stitch came on SSS challenge. Feeling this stitch would be easy to try, I jumped over two previous stitches and started this stitch sampler. The working of the stitch is here on Queenie’s blog.
I started with the stitch looking like ‘Q’s. being the stitch name. In the second sample the chain stitch horizontal and the stitch extended upwards. The third row samples are V- shaped Q stitches, not a successful effort. The chain stitches twisted.

The extensions of the chain stitches are long and short alternatively on the first row. The chain stitch themselves are long and short alternatively in the second row. The third row is an attempt of Q stitch worked on twisted chain.
SSS.17.Q st-2
In the first row when I worked the chain stitches in an angle, the extensions were worked horizontal. This helped the chain stitches to behave. Double rows of Q stitches are worked in the next two samples. And chain stitch extensions are on both sides. The same idea of working the extensions on both sides is carried over and worked alternatively in the last sample.

It is an easy stitch to work. Can also be used as decorative stitch with other stitches.
