Cast on stitch

The TAST stitch for week 32 is cast on stitch. First I tried a pansy with 2 threads of stranded floss. Sharon showed how to make these in her PLOS class and it was still on my to-do-list. I don’t like my pansy, I placed the cast on stitches to far apart.
Then I did some freestyle embroidery on my rust dyed sampler. I used cast on stitches, French knots and bullion knots. The threads are blue Caron Wildflowers and brown cotton a broder.
I also stitched 4 cast on stitches with perle 8 on my black linen sampler. The other stitches are square herringbone, bullion knots and buttonhole wheels.

  1. Dat viooltje vind ik wel erg goed gelukt. De mooiste in deze serie vind ik de 3e foto. Echt heel mooi, de combinatie van die verschillende steken!

  2. I enjoy your great examples, as usual ...

  3. very very pretty - all of your works - the pansy is a challenge...this first try looks like an iris - pretty!

  4. Cool motif with the combination of stitches!

  5. I like the embroidery on the black linen fabric

  6. HI Annet, thank you for your comment on my latest stitches - the Algerian ones - your cast-on stitches are so inventive and interesting - I will need still some time to do those because we are spending holidays with children, grand-children, friends, nephews and so on.
    I would use AIDA fabric - but then I really have to count stitches - and I am such a 'no-counter'.
