TAST 4

This week, the selected stitch of TAST was Kretan stitch - and I never knew how creatively this stitch could be used until I tried tonight. This time, I tried some stitch combinations - all of them on the basis of Kretan stitch. And these are the results.
The complete block looks like that:
It was a block from a crazy swap and it seemed the right one to bring forward the effect of the stitch.
Picture below: On the left, I made a pattern of Kretan stitch, combined it with some kind of weaving and a detached chain stitch. On the right, another pattern combined with dross stitch, knot stitch and detaiched chain.
On the left, a third pattern and buttonhole wheels. And on the right a pattern which can be easily used to fill a complete field.

.












On the left a furhter pattern, combined with fly stitch and detached chain. An the yellow one pure Kretan.
And below, just a fantasy line with Kretan stitch.



I really liked this one and am looking forward to next week´s task.

  5. Liebe Bente,
    dann fang einfach an. Ich bin auch erst relativ spät zum Crazy gekommen, aber es macht solchen Spaß - eigentlich möchte man gar nicht aufhören. Und es ist eine super Restverwertung, da es ja gar nicht so genau darauf ankommt, sondern eben crazy ist.
    Danke übrigens für Deine netten Wort zum meinem blog, zum Flower Jane, usw.
    LG
    Petra
