TAST 146: Whipped Chain Stitch version 2

TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday which is an online course of stitches on Sharon Boggon's Pintangle. Join in and learn. If you want to do it from scratch, there will be a rerun starting next year.
Read more about it here.

As I have explained before, I want all the TAST stitches in one (private) collection and will give them the chronological number in the order I learn them. 
So now it is time for Whipped Chain Stitch, Version 2, which I will call TAST #146.



By whipping the chain on both sides you get a nice 'knitted' pattern. Or one could take it for the Magic Chain Stitch.

I think I like this version better. It looks like a braid.

Looks like a braid, ever so neat and tidy.

You're keeping up with the chart, I see!

This is a lovely braid.

Yes, it is very pretty, but could be mistaken for the Magic Chain stitch.

Queeniepatch said...

Neat and tidy, you said it!

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, have to catch up!

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, it is lovely, and easy to stitch, too.

Linda Calverley said...

It makes a pretty stitch and you're right, it does look like knitting

Queeniepatch said...

It resembles Magic Chain but here you can use a much heavier or knobblier thread for the whipping.

Renee said...

It does look similar to the magic chain stitch, doesn't it? I love your various color combinations.

Annet said...

I like this stitch, it's much easier than the magic chain and has almost the same look.

Queeniepatch said...

The key point is that it is so much easier than the tangly, tricky Magic Chain!

Queeniepatch said...

You said it - MUCH easier.
