Knotted loop stitch

The second TAST-stitch was up very early, it was still Monday here. So the stitch was in my head when I was going to get some sleep and it just jumped in again when I woke up this morning! To get it out of my head, I just had to make a few knotted loop stitches. For the first row I used perle 5 and played a little with the size and angle of the stitches.When I first saw this stitch, I immediately knew it was a good one for leaves. The left one is done in Sulky variegated cotton 30, it’s only 1 cm from the tip until the end of the stem! For the other 2 leaves I used 3 threads of stranded DMC. I started the leaves at the tip with a stitch in an angle of 90º and I made the stem by ending the stitch as a straight stitch. The stem of the right one is a whipped detached chain stitch.
My third experiment is done in a variegated cotton thread. I started at the top on the right side and I made 3 connecting rows. The second row from left to right, and the third from right to left again. This way it’s a nice filling stitch.

  1. Annet I am in Australia so depending on where you are in the world it will be still Monday night. It will be like this all year - just thought I would let you know and of course take a peak at what you had been doing!
