TAST 68 - Slipped Detached Chain Stitch

This week’s TAST stitch is the Slipped Detached Chain Stitch, also known as the Tulip Stitch.  If you want to know what TAST is all about, check out Sharon B’s Pintangle blog. It’s a great way to learn new stitches.

I really like this stitch and I think it will make a great border. Here’s my sample, using #5 perle cotton for the top row and #8 for the lower row.

I’m adding some surface stitches to my yo-yo shawl project.  So far I’ve used #8 perle cotton – chain stitch, feather stitch, and blanket stitch. I’m not planning to stitch on every yo-yo, just here and there.



  1. The colour gradation in our yo-yo shawl is amazing. This is a real work of art.

  2. The Tulip stitch is great fun, isn't it, and you're right, it would make a beautiful border.
    Your yo-yos are coming along nicely.

  3. I love the colour shading on this. really pretty.

  4. I love what you did with the tulip stitch!
