TAST #69 Buttonholed Double Chain

The TAST stitch of the week, #69, is called Buttonholed Double Chain. It has a reputation for being a 'tricky' stitch and I had to take a few test stitches before I 'got it'. Once I had found the rhythm it was fun to do, and I do like the look.

Instructions are as always on Pintangle.

This time there is only work on my sampler to show.
(I ran out of light purple thread and had a gap that I filled with two orange Buttonhole Bars. As you can see I am still having a problem with the flies; a mutated version has appeared. Time to notify the WHO?)
