Knotted buttonhole stitch

I finished my sampler of the knotted buttonhole stitch just in time before the next stitch is up! Unfortunately I started very late with it, so I’m quite sure I’m inspired by al the lovely examples I saw at the Flickr TAST-group. The row in my first picture is done with 4 threads of stranded DMC. I made the buttonhole stitches in different sizes.The next one is done in blue perle 5. I made 3 buttonhole stitches instead of 2 in two different sizes.
This row in DMC broder special is a combination of 2 of the same rows, but the second one is upside down. I stitched the buttonhole stitches in an angle.
I made the next row with light and dark blue perle 5. I switched colors in the first step of the stitch. I used 2 needles.
The last row is done in a variegated cotton thread. I alternated the direction of the stitch.
If you want to see my complete sampler, just take a look at my Flickr-page.

  2. Most excellent! And I'm visualizing more tangles based on your stitches, if that is okay with you.
