7.Three coral stitches are worked together with feather stitches in the first sample- [single coral stitch was not prominent]. Cretan stitch and coral stitches are alternated in the second sample, it varies from knotted cretan stitch in that the needle does not pass through the fabric in knotted Cretan stitch. I like this sample.

This was an easy stitch and can be combined with very many stitches, the knots will add beauty to any seam.

I am catching up on some of the stitches which I did not work on when they were posted. The 66th week stitch of the TAST 2013 stitch challenge by SharonB is coral stitch.
