22.Triple chain st

I am catching up on TAST challenge stitches. This stitch was  earlier worked TAST 2010 challenge, the link is here. The tutorial for this stitch is on Pintangle.
Some variations of this stitch were tried on the earlier sampler, this sampler was started with triple chain stitch with pistil stitches. The second sample is triple chain stitch worked between zigzag coral stitches. Two rows of this stitch is the third sample.



These three samples of triple chain stitches are worked with chain stitch variations. The first sample was started with berry stitch worked alternatively up and down and ended with berry stitches on top. Twisted chain stitches are worked one side in the second sample. This is one example of polyester thread having a twist of its own, which gives a scalloped look. Slipped detached chains are worked on one side in the third sample.



The central chain gets attention in these two samples, the central chain in the first sample is oyster stitch and in the second sample is cable chain stitch.



In the first sample the central chains  are worked in zigzag manner. The chain stitches are worked  on one side in the second sample.



Triple chain stitches are worked on feathered chain stitch variation in the first sample and worked on buttonhole stitch variation in the last sample.

I liked working with this variegated thread on this stitch sampler. Some variations with beads was in mind, but thought SharonB might introduce it on next year’s challenge . Some motif ideas also floated, which were dashed with catching up wave.

This is the 22nd week’s stitch of the stitch challenge by Sharon and is a variation of  chain stitch.The sampler-

Triple chain st-1

learnt to do the stitch on the first row.

The chain st in the middle, is made long&short alternatively .

Here, the chain sts  on the  top and bottom  are made in adjacent holes.

triple chain st-2

The side chainsts are from left to right.

The bolder side chain sts are from right to left.[Great innovations]

I tried some  similar  variations of the side chain sts.

Here, the height of the longtailed side chain sts [really long word] are varied alternatively.

Iam really enjoying this sampler,since Iam only typing the variations now!

Triple chain st-3

This row of triple chainst  is capped with fly stitches.

Laced this row with a ribbon[though not perfectly] you get the idea.

the chain st is whipped in the row[not seen clearly, next time I’ll do it in contrasting thread]

the sides chains are notusual chains , but twisted chains.HA! HA!.

triple chain st-4

the top chain sts are normal chains and the bottom ones are longtailed.

 In this row there are two variations in the height of the side chain sts.

 This row is for adding beads later.

this row the side stitches are leaning to the left.

Triple chain st-5

Added beads.

A row of zigzag back st, single triple chainst[is that correct?] and shabby beads.

A really wide cretan stitch with triple chain st.

Triple chain st-6

Two rows of vertical version of this st.

Tried some motifs with this stitch.

The sampler is done.It is 14 inches in height.
