Stitch 91 in the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge is an interesting variety of chain stitch called Linked Double Chain. I plan to experiment a little more with this stitch, as every time I try it out it is process of rediscovery and I remember how I like the way it follows a curve and I like the pattern it sets up. Inevitably I say to myself “I must do more of this stitch”. Then I get distracted and I am off trying another stitch or technique. The good thing about the 2020 challenge is that I hope to explore more of those stitches that I have experimented enough with to see the possibility but not not used enough for them to become part of regular repertoire. I have even started a list!
As Usual you can find a tutorial for Linked Double Chain in my Stitch Dictionary.
