TAST #93 Plaited Feather Stitch

TAST stitch #93 is called Plaited Feather Stitch, and is a relative of the Straight Sided Feather stitch (#91) and an even closer relative of the Crossed Feather stitch (#92).

If you look closely you can see that the two threads go over and under each other.

It can make a beautiful, thick braid or a band of airy, open lace.

To learn more about TAST, get inspiration from Sharon's creations and see others' work, go to Pintangle.

  4. Neat stitches, they look so different if you change the density! I think it would be a great stitch to represent braided hair.

  8. Great interpretations of the stitch and the references to other stitches is good to know about. I can see lots of use for your versions.They would make good borders.

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
