TAST Nos. 129 + 130 Lock and Double Lock

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I used Aida cloth and perle 8 on all the samples.

No. 129-Loch stitch on the top row.  I spaced the upright stitches 6 rows deep and 3 wide but found the weaving moved and needed to be fiddled with.

The middle row left is Lock again but 5 rows deep and 2 wide – much better for me and I worked the weaving in the centre of the uprights.

On the right side, middle row, I worked No. 130-Double Lock in the centre which left the ends of the uprights showing.

Bottom row left, Double Lock working bottom row from right to left and coming back right to left in the centre.

and on the right side Double Lock on the bottom of the row, turning cloth and repeating on the bottom of the row.

I did Lock Stitch in 2010 and a link to the sample is here

Over on Pintangle, there is information about TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesdays).  Available to anyone interested in learning new stitches in your own time.

  1. What a fun group of samples! I would not have thought about interlacing from the center. I love the variety and the variegated colors.
