Old knotted loop stitches

The TAST stitch for week 41 is knotted loop stitch. It was the second stitch in TAST 2010. This detail is part of the sampler I stitched at the time. It’s very small, only 1 x 1 cm. The thread is Sulky cotton 30. More details of the same sampler here and here.
The knotted loop stitch is a great stitch for leaves. Here I stitched them in perle 5 on my buttonhole eyelet flower sampler.
This detail is part of my last TAST 2010 sampler. These stacked knotted loop stitches are done in perle 8.
A seam on my crazy ornament Snail in the garden. The thread is Sulky cotton 30, the same thread as my first sample.
This is a detail on my ATC Blueprint. The knotted loop stitch in perle 8 is surrounded by Portuguese stem stitches in perle 5 and 8.
My last detail is on a Halloween ornament I made last year. The knotted loop stitches inside the body are stitched with 1 thread of stranded floss. The original pattern was completely stitched in backstitches.

    you're right this stitch can be scarey . . . i tried making a skeleton . . . i'm not sure how really scarey it is but it did make me smile.
