Sunday Stitch School-lesson 88 -Zig-Zag Cable Chain

I used a perle 8 navy thread on Aida cloth.  The firmer cloth helped hold the knot.

Variegated Cottage Garden thread used here. Plain cloth was less fiddly to work on but I still lost some knots when taking the thread to the back.  I’ll practise more and try a shorter stitch length too.

Queenie’s lesson for this stitch can be found here

  1. Lovely stitching Maureen 🙂 x

    • Thank you, Barbara.

  2. I also found that the stiff Aida fabric was a great help.
    Oh, I like this stitch SO much better than the Zig-zag Chain Stitch.
    Using variegated threads add a lot of interest.
