What a coincidence that Sharon of Pintangle should give us two versions of the Raised Chain stitch for two consecutive weeks at a time when I was so busy. Perfect for me to post both stitches at the same time!
To learn all about TAST click here.
Here they are:
TAST #80 Raised Chain Stitch Version 1
This is worked on the last spot of my travel sampler.
The stitch looks a bit like the Purl knit stitch.
TAST #81 Raised Chain Stitch Version 2
I am now back to working on my usual sampler.
This stitch reminds me of the Knit knit stitch.
Wouldn't it be fun to make a stumpwork figure dressed in a sweater made up of Knit and Purl stitches = version 1 and 2 of the Raised Chain Stitch?
Before that I need to learn to use the same colour for the foundation stitch and the Chain stitch. Here you can see very clearly that the foundation bar is made with grey thread!
