The sampler was completed with these stitch combinations. Browsing the net, I find that this stitch is widely used. I enjoyed working on this sampler. The whole sampler-

5. I worked some isolated stitches with zigzag chain stitch in these samples-
Row 1-pistil stitches and Italian border stitch
Row 2- detached chain stitches and Algerian eye variation.
Row 3- buttonhole wheel variation and triangular feather [this version of feather is commonly used to decorate some Indian ethnic embroideries] stitches.

Row 1-oyster stitch and french knots.
Row 2-bullion knots and slipped detached chain stitches

This week’s zigzag chain stitch is very simple and decorative stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB. I have often tried zigzag version of possible stitches on my samplers. Today I did some samples on this sampler.

2.Another pattern is worked with zigzag chain stitch in the first row. Two rows of the stitch is worked in the second sample. One chain stitch is straight and next one is worked at angle in the third row, the chains kept slipping with this thread here, so the method is not seen clearly.
