TAST stitch 74 is zigzag chain stitch and TAST stitch 75 is woven zigzag chain stitch. I used both on my 14 count Aida sampler.
I planned to stitch zigzag chain stitch rows in different threads to make a filling, but it became a nice border. The red stitches are wool, the yellow perle 8. I decorated it with four-legged knots in purple perle 5.
This double row of zigzag chain stitch is done in Caron Wildflowers. It just looks like a row of woven cross stitches, but it was fun to stitch.
Woven zigzag chain stitches in perle 5. I had no idea how to experiment with those, so there’s only one row of woven zigzag chain stitches.
A last row of zigzag chain stitches in a different angle, the thread is Caron Watercolors. I used a tip in my embroidery book Stitch Sampler and pierced the base of each stitch. That way the stitches behave nicely.
