A few weeks ago Queeniepatch introduced us to zigzag stitch in her Sunday Stitch School. I made an Aida sampler to give it a try. Last Saturday I only shared the first rows, today I’m going to share the remaining experiments.
In these 2 rows I experimented with the size of the zigzag stitch. The threads are yellow cotton a broder #25 and 2 threads of stranded pink floss.
Here I alternated the size of the zigzag stitch. The thread is perle 12.
Of course I also had to stitch a normal zigzag stitch in perle 8, but . . .
. . . it also looks great if you shift every other row.
I did the same with my alternated experiment in perle 12. I like these rows of bowties, but . . .
. . . when I shifted every other row it looks even better. Love this variation, it gives a very nice pattern.
And here’s my complete sampler. I enjoyed experimenting with zigzag stitch.
