Weeks 28/29 Raised Chain

Two versions of the Raised Chain

From left to right

Single bar – first version

Worked over 2 bars – second version

The 3rd I moved across the bar, inserted the needle through the cloth on the right and came up on the left at the next  bar below.

The 4th I stitched on the left and centre without catching the fabric.

The 5th I worked from top to bottom on the left side, reversed the work and repeated the chain.

I carried the thread across between the green bars on the first sample of the fan and in the second one, inserted the thread behind the cloth for each ‘petal’.

I found this an easy and enjoyable stitch.

  1. You are quick off the mark and what wonderful variations. I’m still looking for my threads!

  2. Carolyn it helped that my Perle 5 threads are in one box, as I bought up lots when they were on special and they work so well in TAST.

  3. Thank you so much for your site. It’s wonderful. Karen Carroll
