This stitch looks quite decorative by itself, combining it with other stitches gives scope to explore this stitch. I happy that I learnt this lovely stitch. As Queenie patch mentioned it looks like Thai script. In our country, some eastern languages like, Bengali, Oriya and Assamese script also look like this but with more curves.

This week’s stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by Sharonb is top knotted buttonhole. I am still in the process of learning this stitch, holding the knot and inserting the needle is a bit difficult at this stage.

2.The zigzag version of this stitch is worked in the first row. The top knotted buttonhole stitches are worked on both sides in the second row. I like the way the stitches curl when it was worked, the reason may be the thread, the stitch height or may be both. The stitch is worked in different lengths in the third row.
