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!

  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

  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!
