In new work with the trellis stitch I’ve mostly been concentrating on lines rather than shapes. Although I will admit that there is one shape sample at the end of this post.
Different view, same sample. Tacked to twist.
Leaning in opposite directions around the curves.
A graduated stretch.
For some reason I got excited about this line experiment with the trellis stitch below and it lead to the other experiments with lines that became a rather jumbled mess in the photo following.
A jumble of lines.
The most exciting part to me was the upper left corner where the lines have various heights and angles.
My flower using the reverse chain stitch as the base for the center and making petals. The petals are done in two different colors to show the way I began to develop them. I’ve tried a few completely detached from each other as well as a few other experiments. More in the next post.
