TAST 3, week 42, Italian Knotted border

This is a very nice stitch to work.  I used Perle 8 yellow and stitched into the same holes for most of the pattern. If you imagine a Fly stitch between A, B and  C then make the knot, I then make an upside down Fly stitch coming up at C, down at D and up at B, finishing with another knot.

I did a few versions of this method in Blue and dark green wool, both doubled and single. In the bottom right sample I moved the ‘C’ stitch to come up directly below ‘A’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few more samples .  I liked the little flower.  That figure 2 developed without any plan.  grin….. I began, by thinking of a waterlily.  There are knots along the sloped section but are covered by the slanting threads.

I hope to try the stitch with some darker threads and gold metallics to see how it would look as a Renaissance border

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is part of my CQJP November block.  A tan perle 12 thread seam and green DMC with 3 threads around the Battenburg lace flower.
