TAST 150: Whipped Spoke 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 Whipped Spoke 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 Whipped Spoke Stitch,  which I will call TAST #150.

This stitch is very similar to TAST 11 Whipped Wheel, but I made a band instead of a wheel.

First on Aida,

then on canvas

and finally on the TAST Reference Chart.

I have tried the wheel but not the band. Thanks for a new idea!

I think the very best way of using this stitch is for a fan or shell! Something between the band and the wheel!

It can be used as a sort of halfway as well, going around a curve, creating a ribbed curved shape.

I have done the wheel but I cannot remember doing a band

It makes a good band.

Janie said...

I like that idea, spokes instead of a wheel, even letting it curve, wow.
And it looks great, Queenie.

Queeniepatch said...

This gives me the idea to use it for an accordion, a high collar a la Queen Elizabeth I....

Queeniepatch said...

I never thought of the band until I saw it on Pintangle.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, it does.

Queeniepatch said...

It would not be out of place on a cq seam either!

Another lovely stitch, which I also use from time to time.

I have used it in curves, wheels, fans and shells, but not as a band.
