It seems like a long time since I’ve done many grid patterns when experimenting with a stitch. For me the thorn stitch is perfect for exploring on a grid. I took advantage of it a few days ago and did the following samples.
A mirror image with an overlap. Here, and in the last two samples below, I’m playing with the length between the tie downs on the straight stitches.
The two samples directly above are “on grid” (counted fabric/ground) experiments that came to mind due to some of the curves I stitched “off grid” (non-counted ground) earlier in the week.
Here I think the distance between the tie downs got too long. But this pattern may easily be adjusted to shorten that length.
