TAST Nos.122,123-Chained Bar and Woven Chained Bar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANo. 122- Chained bar, worked over knitted rayon tape with DMC  ‘metallic jewel effects’.  Sadly it moves and doesn’t look neat.  Perhaps I should have twisted the thread as I stitched.

No. 123- Woven Chained Bar.  Second attempt at this.

Again I used the knitted rayon tape as a base and hand-dyed silk thread for weaving.  My error yesterday doing this was to have the bar too deep and stitching too wide, making the chain stitches loose when weaving.  This time I placed the zig-zag points closer and 2 rows instead of 3 of the tape.  Not perfect but much better and as I like the effect, will be using it more.

  1. I wish my chain bars looked liked yours. I’ve unpicked mine 6 times now and still it doesn’t look right.

    • It took me several goes at keeping the chains where they belonged too, Carolyn. There must be an easy way to hold them in place,

  2. Metallic flosses can be such a bear to work with. I still think the chained bar is lovely. I love the color combinations and the textures. I hope my woven chained bar attempt turns out as well as yours. 🙂

    • Thanks for the kind words Renee.

  3. Thank you for sharing your work with us. I will soon have a go at these two TAST stitches.

    • Hi Queenie, I look forward to seeing what you come up with.. always interesting.

  4. You have made an excellent job of this stitch. Hope I can start catching up with the tast soon.
