Old barred chain and alternating barred chain

The TAST stitch for week 12 is barred chain and alternating barred chain. Just like every Tuesday I wanted to show you some old samples of this stitch. To my astonishment I only found my sampler for TAST 2007. I never used this stitch again! So today I show you the details of my TAST 2007 sampler. It’s stitched on muslin with 2 threads of stranded DMC. I started with a barred chain doodle.
Then I made a barred chain circle and decorated it with beads.
Here I experimented with alternating barred chain.
My last experiment was a barred chain doodle with a piece of pink tulle on the muslin.
You can see the complete 2007 sampler in my original post here. It will be fun to experiment with this stitch again!


  1. Very pretty! I especially like your beaded circle.

  2. Always enjoy your posts! THanks so much!

  3. I am still trying to catch up with TAST 2012. I am hoping to finish my barred chain this week. I love the combination of colours you have used. Adding beads makes your circle look very pretty. Marion x
