3. I tried taking longer stitches to work wrapped coral stitches in the first row. Long and short  wrapped coral stitches  are worked alternatively in the second row. The stitches are worked at angle in the third row.

4.in the first row, the stitches are worked on both sides. Though this involved turning the frame often, it was worth it. The idea is repeated in the second row in zigzag manner. Individual wrapped coral stitches are worked in the spaces in the last row.

I want to try some stitch combinations after this

I liked coral stitch, it was easy to work. The wrapped coral stitch is 72nd week’s stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB. The workings are detailed on her blog. I started with this stitch sampler today.

1.The first row is the trial row, the coral stitches are worked slightly apart, when worked like this, the wrapping creates a scallop, which is interesting. The stitches are worked closer in the second row. Coral stitches are worked closer and apart to form a pattern in the third row.

2.Two rows of wrapped coral stitches are worked together in these samples. The scallops are also wrapped just as for fancy hem stitch [ I am yet to work on it, in this challenge!]. The rows are worked one over the other in the third row.
