When I started this sampler,Though the stitch was easy to work, I was not satisfied with the asymmetry of the stitch. But from the the fifteenth picture, I started liking this stitch. Totally a wonderful experience.


Worked a few more variation of this week’s stitch.
12-a- worked alternated barred chain stitch in between two rows of running stitches.
b-three detached chain stitches with long tails worked on the spaces made with this stitch.
c-barred chain stitch combined with crossed chain stitch.

15- This week’s stitch is about working one twisted chain and normal chain stitch together. I tried this variation, twisted chain and normal chain stitch worked at angles facing away from each other. When I thought about this variation, did not imagine, it will look so lovely.

May try this stitch with other stitches tomorrow.

A long name for a simple stitch. This is the 12th week stitch of the TAST 2012 stitch challenge by SharonB. Both the stitches being similar are joined together,

because they are similar. I started with this stitch sampler on the first TAST challenge, when it was rerun on stitchin fingers.
Thought I ‘ll refresh this stitch again. I ‘ll try using this stitch with other stitches also in this sampler-
1-first row- the length of the chain stitch is shorter than the length of the barred chain stitch
.2nd row- the length of the chain stitch is longer than the barred chain stitch.
3rd row-the twisted chain stitches are longer in the top than the ones in the bottom.
4th row- tried a curved version of this stitch., st2-1

2-the stitches in the first row turn at right angles to form a pattern.
2nd row- consecutive two stitches are worked on both sides., st2-2

3- the barred chain is worked on one side only, the height of the stitches vary in this row., st2-3

4-1st row- barred chain stitches are worked on both sides of the normal chain stitch in copper colour.
2nd row- barred chain stitches are worked facing each other., st2-4

5-I tried to work the barred chain stitches straight, with fly stitches., st2-5

6-worked same as the previous row, with fly stitches placed in between.,ab ch st2-6

7-I worked the chain stitches at right angles to the barred chain stitches., st2-7
