Stitches used in this area

This detail is another variation of slipped detached chain. I turned them on their side and instead of working regular detached chain stitch in the middle  of the arms I worked oyster stitch. I also used different threads. I used perle #8 cotton, rayon and hand dyed wool. I really enjoyed the mix of threads.
