The TAST stitch for week 38 is drizzle stitch. I added them to my grey linen sampler. The threads are Stef Francis perle 5, Caron Watercolors and cotton a broder.
This pink-orange drizzle stitch with Caron Watercolors is a variation. The cast on loops of the drizzle stitch reminded me of the first half of the double knot, a needle tatting stitch. So I made 2 different cast on loops, a normal one and a mirrored one and repeated that. This variation doesn’t twist, I like it! I tried to take some photo’s of the process, but it didn’t work this time. In the first 50 seconds of this video you can see the double knot in tatting, the move of the thread is the same as in my drizzle variation.
This is a detail of block 4 for Karen’s class Embroider, Embellish, Create. It’s part of a doily I bought at a flea market, the grey satin stitches were already on it. I added the drizzle stitches with ecru cotton a broder.
