I returned to the buttonholed double chain again. I wrote about my first try here. This time I just stitched it on my TAST-sampler. I started with the yellow row at the left side. I had the same problems as the first time, but after a few stitches I saw how it was supposed to look. Then I stitched the purple row and made it wider. This looked much better, but I didn't like the beginning and ending of the rows. I started the variegated row the same as the Turkman stitch (aka double chain). The orange row is started with 2 open chain stitches and ended with the buttonholes. I started the last purple row at the right side with a buttonhole bar. This was how I wanted it to look! Then I played a little with the name buttonholed double chain. I stitched the Turkman stitch (aka double chain) in yellow and buttonholed the zigzag in purple.
And I tried some freestyle stitches too, I like it!
