Raised chain band: Day 1

February 24, 2008

I’ve been poking about for more stitches built on straight stitches and found this one. I’ve come to love working with in the past few days. There is a great drawing of how to work the stitch here. Many thanks to Classic Stitches.

Here are samples. I captured them when we had a few minutes of sun the other day. It’s a good thing because they are bulky and my scanner doesn’t do well with them.

The photograph above is the standard by the book sample. Below I start playing with colors.

Now to play with the background stitch a bit.
