This week’s stitch on TAST 2012 challenge by SharonB is cable chain stitch.
I was not expecting this! I had skipped this stitch in the previous challenge, and worked on it as a category of chain stitch during the 8thweek of this challenge. Now this stitch has its own place on this challenge. I want to maintain the tempo of my stitch sampler, so will work on a few variations of this stitch . the sampler-

25.cabl chain stitch sampler-2

The details-
1. As  suggested by SharonB on her blog, I tried this stitch on curved line, on these two rows-


2. On the first row, cable chain stitch is worked over three straight stitches worked at even intervals. The second row,the cable chain sticth is combined with crossed buttonhole stitch.


3.cable chain stitch is worked with bugle bead rows.


4.the first row ,cable chain stitch is worked between two rows of herringbone stitch. The second row,I tried combining cable chain stitch with stem stitch, not very appealing though. The third row cable chain stitch worked over a row of vertical herringbone stitch.


5. first row is a combination of cable chain stitch with feather stitch.
The second row, it is a combination of cable chain stitch with Cretan stitch, for some reason I  like this variation.


6.this row is a combination of cable chain stitch with buttonhole wheel.


This week’s cable chain stitch sampler is completed with this row.
