As every Monday afternoon (USA, west coast) I read about Sharon b‘s stitch for the 38th week of the TSTC. It is the knotted buttonhole band and Sharon has provided an excellent step-by step on this stitch in the introduction. It sounded like a lot of fun to try and I started in on it right away. It’s a stitch that is hard for me to execute consistently as the following photos will show. However, that didn’t prevent me from trying out a few experiments.
As you can see just a bit of this and that in trying to figure out how to work with this stitch and make it useful. As an outsider looking in, this stitch seems like a great one for seam treatments since once the simple straight stitches are done everything is worked without moving through the fabrics.
