Looped Cretan & beaded looped Cretan stitch

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.
Here I stitched the loop in a different angle. The thread is Stef Francis perle 5.
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.
Take a closer look at my complete sampler here.

  1. Dank je voor je compliment op mijn borduurtje. Ik vind jouw borduurwerk zo veelzijdig, je probeert van alles uit. Leuk hoor.
    Ik ga de cursus van Sharon doen. Ben benieuwd.

    1. Dank je wel, Anita. Ik moest even denken welk borduurtje ik van je gezien had, ik zag hem op je blog en wist toen dat ik hem of SF gezien had.Ik weet zeker dat je heel veel zult leren in Sharon's cursus, ik heb hem een aantal jaar geleden gedaan. Geniet ervan!

  2. With beads you can change the look of a stitch; it can add sparkle, dimension and structure, but also WHERE you place the bead, as you have shown!
    It is also interesting to see how the angel of the stitch can make it change from a 'cretan loop' to a 'feathered loop'!
    Great show, Annet!

    1. Thank you, Queenie. I didn't realize I stitched a feathered loop. I just continued using different threads and angles. I don't think I'm going to use this stitch on CQ, I couldn't get into the rhythm of this stitch!

    1. Thank you, Margaret. This stitch looks nice, but I didn't like stitching it.
