The other stitches were worked over this stitch [a long name] in these samples. First sample has buttonhole stitch variation and detached chains. The second sample has cretan stitch worked into it. the third sample has herringbone and quarter buttonhole wheels on it.

A very lovely stitch to work. I am not getting many ideas because my husband needs to undergo another surgical procedure – Virectomy on 30th march.

This stitch is similar to last week’s stitch, the working of which is on SharonB ‘s blog. I worked some samples today.

1.The first row is the stitch example given by SharonB. Keeping with basic idea of this stitch, the second row is worked in two colours. The third row is worked with single cable chain stitch left without buttonhole stitches in between alternating buttonholed cable chain stitches [Phew..] . Another variation of this stitch worked with two colours in the fourth row.

2.Long and short cable chain stitches are alternated in the first row. Alternate cable chain stitches are fully covered with buttonhole stitches in the second row. Zigzag cable chain stitches with alternating buttonhole stitches forms the third sample.
