This week Stitch 89 in the Take a Stitch Tuesday ( TAST) is Wrapped Coral Stitch I know it looks a modest unassuming stitch but trust me it more useful than it first appears.
Wrapped Coral stitch is an interesting variety that is handy to know because it is a quick way to create a bobbly line that follows a curve well. Worked closely enough it can be mistaken for a line of French knots and people will ask how you lined them up so straight! It a stitch that is great along edges.
As usual follow the link to the Wrapped Coral Stitch tutorial page and try it out, stitch a sample, photograph it, put in online. Leave a comment on the Wrapped Coral Stitch page with your full web address if you have it on blog or Flickr etc. Feel free to join the TAST facebook group and leave your photo there. Hashtags are #TASTembroidery and #PintangleTAST on places like Instagram etc.
If you need more information the challenge guidelines are on the TAST FAQ page.
