Sampler detail 158

Band description:

This is a check pattern of stitches which alternate between Rice stitch and straight stitches worked on a diagonal slant in a regular manner.

Sampler detail 158 Threads:

On the rice stitch the base cross is worked in yellow rayon ribbon floss and the top bars are worked in a hand dyed wool which is about the same weight as Appletons. The squares of straight stitches are worked in a hand dyed baby knitting wool.

This section of my sampler is worked on Aida


Procion cold water dyes for the threads


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.


This section of the sampler was finished in November 2005.
