TAST is a great challenge to learn new stitches. It stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday and you can learn all about it at Pintangle. com. Click here.
We have reached stitch #86 which is called Turkman Stitch. I had never heard of it, but once I started stitching my fingers seemed familiar with the moves. I have previous used it, but under the name of Closed Chain.
I think it makes a nice braid when the stitches are worked close together, like in the last row.
