Take a Stitch Tuesday Week 28

Take a Stitch Tuesday Week 28

For Basic Take a Stitch Tuesday this week I am pointing everyone towards a variety of Herringbone stitch called Back Stitched Herringbone. This stitch combines back stitch and Herringbone stitch. It is a lot of fun and is very versatile looking good if you work it row upon row or as a single line. It’s a great stitch to couch ribbon down with too!

Take a Stitch Tuesday Week 28 Beyond TAST

This week for Beyond TAST I am suggesting two varieties of laced Back Stitched Herringbone. You can see how much fun this stitch can be.

If you are new to hand embroidery the challenge is to learn the stitch and share what you have learned. If you are an experienced embroiderer, enjoy Beyond TAST and give your work a modern twist. And of course, share it online so beginners can see what can be done with a little imagination.

If you are looking for past TAST stitch challenges the archives are in the Take a Stitch Tuesday category

Where to Share

If you are doing the design challenge you have a month to work a design and stitch it up.

So the idea is to stitch a sample, photograph it, share it in the Take a Stitch Tuesday facebook group, or use the hashtags #TASTembroidery and #PintangleTAST on Instagram.

If you need more information the challenge guidelines are on the TAST FAQ page.

I hope you have fun with these varieties of herringbone stitch!
