TAST #89 Twisted Satin Stitch

TAST is an abbreviation for Take A Stitch Tuesday, a great challenge at Pintangle.

Stitch # 89 is called Twisted Satin Stitch and is easy to do, quick and has a nice look.
The light green has one twist, the light blue two twists.
I took up Annet's idea and changed to a different thread in the lower black and white row…

  1. With two colors, it almost looks like a different stitch.

    1. Maybe we should rename it to Magic Twisted Chain; there is a Chain stitch called Magic Chain where two threads are used.

    1. Annet's old stitch sampler is such a wonderful source of inspiration and 'copy'.

  3. What a difference two colours makes, it shows off the stitch much better!

    1. I would never have thought of that idea myself, so I am very grateful to Annet.

  4. Great idea to make a double twist! The using of 2 different colours wasn't my idea, I just read it in Embroidery Stitches by Mary Webb.

    1. OK, it wasn't your idea, but you shared it with the rest of us, that is what counts. THANK YOU for always being such an inspiration.

    1. Julie is one of my most observant friends, she can spot things I never notice! You are both right, the two colours of thread add a new dimension to this stitch.

  6. Lovely samples. the double twists look like isolated Breton stitch. I love the black and white ones for the combination.

    1. You're right. And a lot of stitches would be difficult to identify at a glance. e.g. Up and Down Buttonhole and Knotted Buttonhole.
