The working of this stitch is on Pintangle.
This is also a simple stitch with lots of possibilities. In this piece I did not do much of experiments. An element of a traditional Indian design was chosen to work this stitch.

An outline with whipped and laced buttonhole stitch was also tried on this piece. It was started with buttonhole and straight stitches.

This pattern was not ideal to work variations of double lock stitch. But working on this, helped in experimenting a new way to work this buttonhole stitch outline. The lock stitch was instrumental in bringing out this idea, I suppose.

I completed this 6 inches by 6 inches square woven trellis stitch piece.

The last few details. A satin ribbon was couched[?] with woven squares. This was an experiment to see the ribbon and the woven squares has a filling treatment. The edges were fixed with woven trellis too. I used shaded yellow perle cotton for weaving.

A lace flower with violet glass beads was fixed with eight woven trellis stitches. I thought it wouldn’t be possible to use loop for this, but it was possible and easier to work with loop.

I also tried two woven stitches on this paisley design. the top was woven with metallic thread.

It was not easy to work with stranded floss. With my scant collection of perle threads, I can’t experiment with colours.

I had seen a part of an embroidery on pinterest, where a shape was filled with florals and leaves. This gave me an idea to work this piece. Since I wanted to try this stitch as a linear stitch, as filling and worked over satin ribbon, these were also incorporated in to this. I was able to bring paisley design into this exercise, which might be used for some future project.

Some flowers that were worked today. Woven trellis stitch is worked in yellow and medium violet in this flower, with buttonhole and herringbone stitches.

An extra stitch was added to each side of the petal and woven trellis was worked on them. Three rows of chain stitches were worked in various shades of yellow.

Back to work on this piece now.

I worked some flowers with woven trellis stitch and other stitches. The woven trellis is worked in two shades of violet. Stem stitch, buttonhole and detached chains are worked in yellow, violet and yellow silk thread respectively.

I did not work the detached chains in the centre of this flower properly. Woven trellis is worked in antique violet and the Vandyke stitches are worked between them in dark violet.

This flower is a combination of woven trellis with long tailed chain in light violet perle thread.

The basic idea is, to fill the paisley design with these flowers.

I have settled down on one idea to work the variations of woven trellis stitch this week. It is 6 by 6 inches block. This stitch is to be worked on this piece in this week. I am fond of paisleys, so the main theme is a paisley. I am intending to share my progress on this piece here. I have another tunic project which I need to start, so it may be slow.
I started working this stitch on herringbone stitch with straight stitches in between.
