Diamond stitch

. . . is the first new TAST-stitch. I made 3 rows to see how this stitch works. The left one is done in blue perle 5, the one in the middle with variegated cotton thread and the right one in yellow perle 5 with blue beads. I like the one with the beads very much, it’s very useful for crazy quilting. I will try to explain how I made it. I started the stitch with the first knot like Sharon describes here. Then I put 2 beads on my thread and made the knot at the left side. Before I made the knot between the 2 beads I put a bead on my thread again. I made the knot between the beads and put another bead on my thread. This way the beads are between the knots.

  2. Wat goed dat je de eerste steek van de nieuwe TAST reeks al hebt uitgeprobeerd! De kraaltjes vind ik een fantastische uitvinding bij deze steek.

  4. Love how you have worked the beads into the diamond stitch, very effective and almost looks like an elaborate braid.
