This zigzag stitching was tried on many stitches- chain stitch, back stitch, running stitch, buttonhole stitches. In fact one of the variation tried on various stitch explorations is this zigzag version of the stitch. This time around on SSS challenge we have just the basic zigzag stitch, which I have never tried before. The working is on Queenie’s blog.
The sampler starts with the basic zigzag stitch in the first sample. The individual version of zigzag stitch was tried in the second sample, this uses more thread in the back. a closely worked zigzag stitch is worked in the third sample.

The zigzag stitches are long and narrow in the first sample, after working the wider version of this stitch in the second sample, the wider and narrower versions are alternated in the third sample. The fourth sample is long and short zigzag stitch.

After working X-ray stitch and Y stitch, it was tempting to work Z stitch. This first sample is more of a variation of back stitch. After this three rows of zigzag stitches were worked  upright cross stitch, weaving and chain stitch are worked over the crosses in dark blue thread.
