12.Now for the buttonhole stitch variations. The first row is worked with up and down buttonhole stitch, and the second row with closed buttonhole stitch. alternate chain stitches are to be skipped to work closed buttonhole stitch.

This was simple stitch to work. The chain and buttonhole stitches themselves being versatile, enabled to work many variations. I did not try any other stitches in this sampler.

6.The buttonhole stitches are worked on both sides of the chain stitches in the first row. I wanted to obtain a curved look, but this row looks like alternative barred chain. In the second row, the sailor stitch variations are done in v-shape.

Will try some variations with two rows of sailor stitches worked together from the next sample.

This week’s stitch is sailor stitch on the TAST 2013 stitch challenge by SharonB. This stitch is buttonhole stitch and chain stitch worked one after another. A simple stitch, I may think of this combination while working buttonhole stitch sampler but do not know this can be a separate stitch . I started this sampler today-
