TAST Week Sixty-Six: Twisted Lattice Band

This week's stitch for the TAST Challenge hosted by Sharon Boggon at Pin Tangle  is a really pretty combination of stitches which results in the Twisted Lattice Band.  Sharon's tutorial for it is here.

The base stitch is a row of double herringbone stitches (one of my firm favourite stitches!) which I added to my sampler in a green cotton perle (8) thread inside one of my partial circles along one of the edges.  A top thread is then laced in and out of the base herringbone stitches.

I used a variegated silk thread to add the top laced stitches.  As the thread is fine, it has added quite a subtle touch of colour to the base.  I love the resulting twisted lattice band and, it was great fun to stitch! 


  1. So amazed by all of these different stitches. Thanks for your sweet comment and encouragement on my last post. Sewing is always a good way to add happy to your day. The days are busy here and pass quickly but I'm trying to find a little time everyday to sew something. Hope your December days find much Joy and Love. Janita

  2. Looks really great and these silk threads look wonderful. May I ask you where you can buy them?
    The Overall look is also so lovely!

  3. Good Afternoon Christine, Oh I love your work and I love sewing curves and circles.
    The colours you have chosen are gorgeous and the herringbone stitch with the thread laced through it looks like smocking.
    .... just gorgeous.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Best Wishes

    1. Thank you very much Daphne! It is funny you should mention smocking.... I thought that as I was stitching it! Hope you have a lovely weekend also! Christine x

  4. Just beautiful! I agree with Daphne - reminds me of smocking.

  5. Another fun stitch Christine. Not an easy one to make circular I would think so you made a good choice to stay on the straight and narrow!

  6. Es wird wirklich immer schöner! Viel Spaß beim weiter sticken!
    Liebe Grüße

  7. Such a beautiful stitch! I think it works perfectly where you have placed it. Looking forward to the next one! Ariadna.
