This band of stitching is created by working a foundation row of the hybrid of chevron stitch and herringbone stitch that I spoke about and illustrated in band 146, which i then tied with detached chain stitch.
The foundation row is worked in a hand dyed wool and the detached chain stitches are worked in perle thread #8.
This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen
Procion cold water dyes for the wool 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.
