Pekinese stitch

I first tried this stitch on an evenweave fabric with perle 5. I made a Pekinese stitch in yellow and red (bottom) and a double Pekinese stitch in red (top). They both have green backstitches.My second experiment was a Pekinese stitch on a circle. I used a piece of unbleached cotton and 3 threads of stranded DMC in 2 shades of green.
This was a very easy stitch, the next one looks very tricky!

  1. Zeker geen ingewikkelde steek, maar wel eentje met aardige mogelijkheden zo lijkt me. Ik ben zelf een beetje gestopt met TAST, misschien ga ik deze echter wel binnenkort eens uitproberen.
