TAST #70 Crested Chain Stitch

TAST #70 is called the Crested Chain Stitch. Fun and easy.
Here is my sampler

As I didn't make a 'project' piece with last week's #69 stitch, Buttonholed Double Chain, I thought I'd make a (Sumptuous Surface Embroidery) combination piece of #69 and  #70.
My scarp bag and odd button box are now a few pieces lighter.

For more TASTy work, go to Pintangle.

You say "fun and easy", I see "complicated and incredible", these stitches look like needle lace.

That's the beauty of this stitch, it's easy but looks complicated!

You have mastered the buttonholed double chain beautifully. You sampler of the two stiches is very creative.
