|Knotted Cable Chain stitch|
This last challenge was for the Knotted Cable Chain stitch. Sharon at Pintangle said it is used as a linear stitch and creates an interesting textured line.
I must admit I had trouble grasping the instructions - as seen by the purple stitching, using perle #12 - which I removed at least 5 times! Then the bottom pink row I followed the illustrations in Crazy Quilting - I used perle #5 and it seemed to look a little more like it should. For the pink variegated pink curved line, I followed instructions in Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches - again I had used perle #5.
Now I'm ready for Sharon's TAST 2013 challenges...
