Petal stitch experiment

Having done Queenie’s Petal stitch I decided to play with the stitch and came up with what looks like an Alternating Up and Down version.  I worked from left to right.  Again, it was easy to do.  I only had to remember if the petal was at the bottom, the next linear stitch began below the last and if the petal was above, the next linear stitch was above.

  1. A GRAND variation!

    • Thank you, Queenie. I hope to play more with the stitch this week.

  2. This is such a pretty stitch Maureen. Love it 🙂 x 💕

    • Glad you like it Barbara. Another use could be for a border.

  3. Back when Sharon Boggon did the first TAST challenge I took part and one of the fun things was trying to come up with new ways to use the weekly stitch. Must haul out my notes from then and refresh my memory. Like you said in the comments a few posts ago, we tend to stick to the same stitches most of the time, forgetting that there are so many other wonderful ones out there.

    • Sometimes, Mary Anne, we become busy with the projects and stick to those stitches best known to us..more an automatic choice I think. New stitches, especially easy ones are good to introduce though.
