17.wheat ear stitch


Rest if the variations of the wheat ear stitch of the TAST 2012 stitch challenge by SharonB.
In this row the straight stitches are done after working the detached chain stitch. When worked individually they look very pretty. But I worked them in a row.

The same individual wheat ear stitches are worked in opposite directions, in this row.
In the next row , instead of two straight stitches, I worked five straight stitches and worked the detached chain stitches in different colour thread.

The 17th week stitch of the TAST 2012 stitch challenge by SharonB is wheat ear stitch. Though the wheat ear stitch is quite simple, I had not worked this stitch before. This week after completing the satin stitch sampler, I started with this stitch sampler. I found three treatments of this stitch on books.
The straight stitches are worked diagonally.
The straight stitches are worked vertically.
For individual stitches, the straight stitches are done after working the detached chain stitch.
I tried all the three .
The first row the straight stitches are worked diagonally. The second row the stitches are worked vertically.
