TAST Week 14
The stitch for TAST week 14 is an interesting version of Chain stitch, called Cable chain stitch. This is a pleasant stitch to work because you can develop a good easy-paced rhythm. It is also a very useful stitch, as it is a linear stitch that can follow a curve well. As usual, the tutorial for Cable chain stitch will take you through the step-by-step process and give you a few ideas on how to use it.
The Beyond TAST Challenge stitch for week 14
The Beyond TAST challenge stitch for this week is a bit of doozie. I think it’s lots of fun. I encourage people to try Buttonholed Cable Chain stitch. Since this stitch is a variety of chain stitch, it will follow a curve. One thing I really like to do with this stitch is to tuck a bead in the middle of the buttonholed chain. So check out my tutorial on Buttonholed Cable Chain stitch and give it a try.
Where to share your stitching for week 14
The idea is to stitch a sample, photograph it, put in online on your blog, or share it in the Take a Stitch Tuesday Flickr group, or in the TAST facebook group or where ever you hang out online.
