TAST #86 - Turkman Stitch

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.

    1. This is one of those stitches that changes appearance with the length of the stitch. I think you could do a whole picture by just changing the stitch length and the thickness of the thread.

    1. Sharon had actually mentioned the other name, but you know me - I can't read and remember! I really need to pay more attention!

  3. Yes, Turkman stitch has many different faces! Love the braided row. Hopefully I have time soon to catch up on my TAST stitching.

    1. I hope you do! I am looking forward to whatever you do with the TAST stitches - it is bound to be something I have never thought of. Have fun!

    1. Don't worry! You've been busy with so many other things. I will use my 'Braided Turkman stitches' for the Kafferepet quilt, back with report on Wednesday.
