The Stitch File – Chain stitch

These examples were from  Mildred Graves Ryan’s Complete Encyclopaedia of Stitchcraft

My Picot chains would not hold the picot in view.  Two trys in the middle of the bottom row.  Green and yellow.

I also made 3 examples of Crested chain.

The bright pink I did from Mary Corbet’s video.  Great video by the way.

Second last, both rows, on the right are two more Crested chain lines.  One in fine wool and the other in a heavier wool.  I didn’t think the fine one showed up so I repeated it.

This version is different to Mary’s and it didn’t flow as easily.

Some of the stitches were from M.G.Ryan’s book and the others from A-Z stitches, first book.

My Hobby Pursuits...

I love to create, often I create a mess. Occasionally I create something useful. On rare occasions I get really excited.I love old buildings, especially ruins and when I remember to take my camera, I share photos

A place to share with others - my love of needlework and Crazy Quilting which my daughter introduced me into some time ago.
