Buttonholed herringbone stitch

TAST stitch 55 is buttonholed herringbone stitch. I’ve used it to give this charming lady a nice collar. The base is half herringbone half Cretan stitch. The loop at the top is attached with detached chain stitches. The thread is cotton a broder. I turned this into an ATC.
This is an experiment on 14 count Aida. The thread is perle 8. First I made 2 foundation rows in herringbone stitches in 2 different sizes.
And this is the finished row. It would be nice to add beads or other stitches, but I’m not going to do that on this sampler.

  2. I love reading blogs and finding ways to use the TAST stitches I have not thought of myself. Fat-Quarter is such a wonderful blog.
