Old linked double chain stitches

The TAST stitch for week 34 is linked double chain. This is my TAST 2007 sample. It’s stitched with different threads, from top to bottom: orange cotton a broder, 3 threads of stranded floss, perle 5 and organza ribbon. At the left side I made a variation with perle 5, I added an extra step with 3 chain stitches next to each other.
This is an ATC I made a few days after I finished my TAST 2007 sampler. It’s stitched on felt with perle 5.
This is a seam on my crazy ornament Flip Flop. It’s also stitched with perle 5.
My last sample is a progress photo of my PLOS sampler Birth. I stitched the green linked double chain with perle 8.
I enjoyed flipping through my photo’s and reading my old notes for this post. It gave me a few more idea’s to experiment with this stitch.
