TAST 2014 - Stitch No 123

Stitch No 213

Woven Chain Bar

I struggled with this stitch and I'm not sure why perhaps it was the woollen threads I used for the bar?  I used one thread for the blue leaf and two threads for the green leaves to give the impression of depth.  To make the band I added Up and Down Buttonhole , Detached chain and Back Stitches either side of the Woven Chain Bar.


You can find the instructions for this stitch over at Pintangle.  Check out what others have done as well.  You will find the links for this in the comments section.

You certainly have the eye for stitch combinations. Using one strand and two strands for alternating the woven chain stitches is a great idea with good result.


Wool can be less forgiving than we expect. Maybe try again in cotton and see whether it helps?

Yes I think you are right.
