More Chicken Scratch

I purchased a piece of Gingham and tried out some patterns with white knitting cotton and green Perle 8.

I found when I did the all white cross stitch – bottom right- with the diagonal stitches last it looked messy, so I then tried the vertical/horizontal cross last, which did make it lay nicely.

I thought the round pattern looks like a poor man’s Shisha with the white square showing.

The stitches are simple and quite relaxing to do.

  2. Nice variety of stitches. I enjoyed playing around too and it works up quickly. I wonder what February’s challenge will be!

  3. Thanks Diane. I keep checking the calendar to see if the 15th has arrived LOL Not long now.
