As a part of the chain stitch [TAST 2012 stitch challenge] varieties, I am working on samples of checkered chain stitch.
1- These rows are for getting the feel of this stitch.
2-did a zig zag version of checkered chain stitch.
3-a-the length of the chain stitches are varied.
b-as this is also a part of chain stitch, I worked detached chain stitches in a row and worked normal chain stitches over them
4- worked this row, keeping the checkered chain stitch idea.
5-the same checkered chain stitch idea is worked in another variation, with bugle beads.
6- another variation, where a pattern is formed with this stitch.
7-two chain stitches in alternating colours are worked in this row.
8- another pattern is worked in this variation.
With this row I completing my checkered chain stitch sampler.
Tomorrow I need to start on shell chain stitch , which is the last variety of chain stitch , I am working this week .
