This band of stitching actually relates to band 144 and band 143. After using this hybrid of chevron stitch
and Cretan stitch as the foundation of both these bands I thought I had better record an uncluttered version so I did not forget it.

This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen
Procion cold water dyes for the thread
All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.
The sampler is currently 44 ft 5 inches or 533 inches (1353.83 centimetres) or 14.8 yards (13.53 metres) long and still being added to.
I started this section of the sampler in 2004 and completed it early 2005.
