TAST #123 Woven Chained Bar

It's TASTy time again. We have reached TAST #123, which is called Woven Chained Bar and is based on last week's stitch. As you can guess from the name, it is a woven stitch - one of my favourites. To learn it, go to Pintangle.

Now that I have read the instructions correctly and done as Sharon suggested in the previous TAST post, the Chain Stitches that these stitches are based on lie flat and behave very well.

I also took the advice of designer Linda Calverley of Lins Arty Blobs and filled in the 'void' I had left in the centre of last week's sampler (TAST #122 Chained Bar). Thanks, Linda.

  1. Golly, this stitch is less stitch and more fabric, such depth and density, looks good.

  4. The woven chained bars look like they would take a long time to stitch, I like it so I will have a go. The 'void' is looking good too.

    1. Indeed, they are time consuming, but have a good structure and add interest to any embroidery.

  5. How fun! I have been trying to decide which project I should add this stitch to. After seeing your samples, all I really know is that I plan to alternate the colors I weave the stitch with. I love your colorful woven stitches!

    1. This is an easy stitch to change thread for each woven chain so it could be VERY colourful. Enjoy your stitch fun!
