TAST 149: Slipped Cable Chain Stitch

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.
Learn the Slipped Cable Chain Stitch 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 Slipped Cable Chain Stitch,  which I will call TAST #149.


Isn't it beautiful?

    1. Ha, ha!
      I think the look can change dramatically with the choice of thread and length.

  3. It's lovely - it would make a lovely briar stem for a garden picture, wouldn't it!

    1. Yes, or a caterpillar as Julie said, or individual flowers or spiky rings for heavy metal rock stars or... the possibilities are endless.

  9. What beautiful samples you created, Queenie. The second photos makes me wonder if a whole project could be made from only this stitch with many different threads and various sizes.
    It Would look great on CQ seams.

    1. Yes, I agree with you - this stitch would look great on a cq seam. Also it is almost begging to play with different threads, lengths of arms and the links and the sizes of chains. Toss in colour and how the stitches are make, straight or on a curve, and you certainly could compost a whole picture with only the Slipped Cable Chain!

  10. It sounds a great stitch to play with!
    Variegated looks good, but I do like the first picture with individual colours too!

    1. I think you could make a flowering garden, field or bunch of flowers only out of this stitch, Just change the thread!
