TAST # 74 -Zig-zag Chain Stitch

Here we have a member of the chain family, the Zig-zag Chain Stitch. It is the #74 TAST stitch and how to make it can be seen on Pintangle.

It is not new to me, I have enjoyed working with it on many projects. Here are the stitches I used to fill my TAST travel sampler:
As you can see I have worked them in ones and in twos, alternating the rows.

    1. The 'knitted' look inspired me to use them for filling in the whole block.

  2. I've used the stitch before as well but I've never used it as a filling stitch, maybe I should give it a try.

    1. It takes a bit of time when you use a stitch for filling in an area, but usually the result is quite nice and impressive.

    1. On a miniature picture you would use this to make a knitted sweater. Fiddly and time consuming, but as you say, a nice pattern. What have you been up to lately?

  4. What is the TAST travel sampler?
    I like how you used different colors - you can see the individual stitches that way.

    1. I have a TAST sampler in Tokyo that I try out the new stitches on. While travelling I needed a smaller piece of fabric, hence the TAST travel sampler!
      I agree, alternating the colours make it look like a striped knitted muffler.

    1. I guess ANY stitch could become a filling stitch, but this is especially suitable.

    1. Oh, I am surprised. It is simply a chain stitch where each stitch is taken at an angle from the previous stitch, easy-peasy!
