VanDyke & arrowhead stitch

VanDyke stitch is TAST stitch 28, arrowhead stitch is TAST stitch 26. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle. TAST is a rerun, I already experimented with these stitches in previous rounds, but couldn’t resist experimenting with VanDyke stitch again. 

I used perle 5 on 14 count Aida. First a wide stitch, then a smaller stitch inside.
And finally a tiny stitch to complete my variation.
I repeated this until the end of my row.
Then I added 2 rows of arrowhead stitches in perle 12 at both sides.
