TAST 70 - Crested Chain Stitch

This week’s TAST stitch on Sharon B’s Pintangle blog is another new one for me. I tried out the crested chain stitch with perle #5 (variegated), perle #8 (yellow) and perle #12 (green).  I like the packed stitches of the perle #5 sample, but the colors also make that sample pretty. Here's a photo of the whole sampler so far too.

I’m adding just a few beads to some of the edges of the yo-yo shawl.  I could be done with the shawl at any time now. Maybe just a few more stitches….

The Crested Chain stitch looks perfect for Sumptuous Surface embroidery or filling stitches. Your variegated version is so tight and nice.
Your yo-yos are coming along nicely. How many have you made?
