TAST stitches 106 and 107 are looped Cretan and beaded looped Cretan stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
I stitched my samples on 14 count Aida. From left to right the threads are perle 5, perle 8 and cotton a broder.
A row in perle 12.
My beaded looped Cretan stitches. From left to right the threads are perle 5, Stef Francis perle 5 and perle 12. In the dark blue row I put the beads at the loops instead of between the stitches.
