TAST 155: Beaded Alternating Feather 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 TAST here.
Learn how to stitch the Beaded Alternating Feather 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 Beaded Alternating Feather Stitch,  which I will call TAST #155.

  1. The real advantage of this stitch is how much you can change it with the beads, isn't it!

    1. Yes! I love Feather Stitch and it is nice to find ways to vary it. Beads always add dimension, and often sparkle and sheen, too.

  2. I like these. I should probably do this stitch then I would use some of the many beads in my stash.

    1. I can't pick a favorite either, but I do like the curved version on the Reference Chart.

  5. The spacing of beads and thread is really good - shows the pattern well. Lovely colour combos too and I could tell they would curve beautifully. Lovely work Queenie.

    1. Yes, you can still see it is a Feather Stitch in spite of the beads. I like the curve, too.

    1. You are right. Beads are great to make a simple stitch look elegant or special.

    1. It is always fun to try to add beads to those simple basic stitches we already know.
