TAST # 112 Feathered Chain Stitch

TAST #112 is called Feathered Chain Stitch and makes a nice zig-zag line.

First I worked on Aida, one line in blue and one in pink :
Next I added these on my sampler, with different size Chain stitch:

It was an easy stitch. Thanks to Sharon of Pintangle, who will teach you, too, how to make this stitch here.

  2. Hi Queenie, lots of potential for playing with this stitch....Have you ever tried needle weaving like Reticello ? I have this yearning at the moment to try it out !
    Hope you are well.....raining heavily here in the UK......Have a great week end Queenie !

    1. Good evening, Chris. It is nearly 7pm here in Tokyo and it has cooled down a bit after a very warm day.
      I had to Google Reticello to see what it is. Wow! Beautiful needle weaving. No, I have never tried anything like that and look forward to seeing YOUR work!
      You, too, have a rest of the week end.

  3. Great to see this stitch on Aida, I was thinking it wouldn't work. I do hope to find time to stitch my sampler tomorrow, it's time to catch-up on TAST!

    1. I was wondering too, and as you can see the chain stitch has to sit on top of the end of the tail for this stitch to work on Aida. It becomes a kind of Rice stitch!

    1. You win and I accept my defeat! The stitch would look great on plain fabric, too, growing wild.

    1. You can add so many other stitches to this one and make a really sumptuous cq seam.

  9. That looks good. I'm not having the same success with my stitch on the ticking.
