TAST stitch 52 is triangular feather stitch. It was a new stitch for me and I enjoyed experimenting with it. I stitched my samples on 14 count Aida. Of course I started with a normal row, the thread is perle 8. The black thread is my backstitch border.

but I’m not going to do that on this sampler. The thread is Caron Wildflowers.
Here I stitched 2
mirrored rows with perle 5. Between the rows I made cross stitches with 2

My last experiment is a
knotted triangular feather stitch. The thread is Caron Watercolours.
