where arrangements on the Chain Stitch are explored.
I picked stitch #12 on page 15. It is really a combination of the Chain Stitch and the Bullion Knot Stitch on one side. I will therefore give it the unofficial nickname of Half Bullioned Chain Stitch, as Ms Totsuka haven't given it a name.
Work the Half Bullioned Chain Stitch like this:
Use a Milliners (or straw) needle
and stitch away from yourself.
Begin as you would with a Chain Stitch, but
first wind the thread around the needle as many times as you want the Bullion Knot to be long.
Then pull the needle through and gently tighten the stitch into a nice and plump Bullion Knot.
Insert the needle where you started the Chain and come out in the same hole as you exited.
Form a new stitch in exactly the same way, until you have a line like this.
Your homework will be to make a row of the Half Bullioned Chain Stitch on your sampler. Should you find the time, please feel free to play around with this new stitch in a project.
