Lock stitch

While I'm catching up on TAST, I start to learn how to use my new camera. The last few days I enjoyed experimenting with the lock stitch. These are the first rows I made. The top one is in perle 5 and 8, the second one in Stef Francis perle 5. The third row is a buttonhole stitch with perle 12 with a lock stitch in perle 8. In the next row I tied a Chevron stitch with lock stitches. I'm not sure if I like this, but I really like the green row. I made lock stitches at both side of the straight stitches, but not over the same ones.
This row is not knitted! It's just 3 rows of lock stitches with Stef Francis perle 5.
For the last row I made groups of 3 long tailed detached chain stitches with perle 5 & 8 . . .
. . . and tied them with lock stitches in perle 5.
My complete sampler is at my Flickr-page.

  1. They are all your usual lovely stitching, but I love the last one. It looks like bouquets wrapped in ribbons.
    Now you have your camera, I am waiting for Nefertiti. :)

  2. I had the same thought on the last ones - look like bouquets.

  3. I had forgotten how pretty your samples were Annet. Good to see them again.

  4. Oh, Annet, I really NEED you! You are the best to show me how wonderful some stitches are, especially the stitches that I find difficult and soon give up on. THANK YOU!

  5. Thank you Queenie, I'm looking forward to see what you're going to do with lock stitch!

  6. I love all of your examples! I had just decided the pink and green color combinations were my favorites when I saw how you used the lock stitch on your long-tailed chain stitch. It reminds me of a bunch of tulips. Lovely!
