This stitch looks difficult, but actually is quite easy. The polyester thread which was used for this sampler also co-operated in the process. I liked this stitch. The sampler-

Very interesting stitch, the working of which is available on SharonB’s blog. It has three stitches combined-twisted chain, oyster and buttonhole. The buttonhole stitch helps the wrapping oyster stitch stay in place.

After learning this stitch the practice was done on the sampler-

1.The first row was worked looking at SharonB’s pictures. From the second row, I worked this stitch the other way, which was somehow easier for me. The spikes are of varying heights in the second row. The stitches are worked as close as possible in the third row.

2. The stitches are worked slightly apart in the first row, and are worked far and near alternatively in the second row. The needle is inserted slightly away for the twisted chain and thus getting another spike in the bargain in the third row.

3.The buttonhole stitches are worked on both sides in the first row, a curved line was tried in the second row, and up and down buttonhole was worked on the third row.

Time to try two rows of this stitch[ too long to type!] worked together. Tomorrow?
