Sunday Stitch School – lesson 78

Today we have Interlaced Chain stitch worked on Aida cloth.  So easy to create.  It’s the very best chain I’ve ever made. The interlacing was also easy and I think looks good here.  Threads used were blue perle 8 foundation of chains and variegated perle 8 interlacing.

This time I experimented on plain cloth and bending the lines.  I found working into the curve was a bit fiddly but outgoing was no bother.

I guess having it worked in a hoop didn’t help but I needed that for stability.

Threads for this were oddments.  The pink has little twist and no sheen.  The blue, a fine twist cotton with gold thread entwined.

The base of the last one is like string but softer and the yellow is a bit of Brazilian thread – maybe Lola.

  1. Great results!
    When I did my homework I found the stitch quite easy, once I had got the rhythm it was plain sailing. I also made a curved design, there is something wormy about them, don’t you think?

    • Easy, yes! except for the last 6 loops on the Aida. I was half watching what I did and half the TV. tut,tut! Easy to fix though. and yes, a big fat worm.

  2. I’ve done this one many times – it’s fun and looks nice with tendrils. Works well in fuzzier thread/yarn for making creatures too.

    • Mmm, haven’t tried it with fuzzy yarn. yet.. I did another sample with finer thread over thick and liked that version.
