TAST #133 Triple Chain Stitch

What a delightful stitch TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) #133 is. Called Triple Chain it is of course made up of three Chain stitches. It makes such a beautiful braid like line and it is easy to stitch, too!

    1. It is my favourite, too, and the inspiration comes from your stem with leaves (from an old sampler).

  2. I think I like the one stitched with the multi-coloured thread the most and I like the angled stitches too. I have done this one but I keep forgetting to photograph it.

    1. I like the variegated one too, but have found an even nicer way - worked in a circle. I'll show that tomorrow in the WIPW post.

  3. Nice - neat - colourful = beautiful. I like the long legs of the side stitchs on the last row.

    1. It struck me, too, that you could make a line of birds flying with this stitch.

  8. I like the slanted and the long tailed for their difference but they are all lovely.

    1. And yet a sampler is just a piece of training cloth! A bit like your sketch book!
