TAST stitch 116 is beaded VanDyke stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
I stitched my samples on 14 count Aida. Of course I started with Sharon’s first sample. The thread is perle 8.
This is a combo of the previous rows, I alternated the beads in the centre and the arms. The thread is wool.
Here I stitched a small row in perle 8. I added one bead to the arms every 4th stitch.
In this row I added the beads to the arms on one side and alternated left and right, the thread is perle 12.
My last row is almost the same as the previous, I only added an extra stitch between the beaded stitches.
