Take a Stitch on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 Welcome to week 4!
This week’s stitch is Cretan stitch, both Open and Closed versions. Here is the SharonB’s Stitch Dictionary pages with instructions on how to do it.
- Open Cretan Stitch http://inaminuteago.com/stitchdict/stitch/cretan-open.html
- Closed Cretan Stitch http://inaminuteago.com/stitchdict/stitch/cretan.html
There is only one other variation of Cretan stitch (Knotted) and we will see that later on in the year.
Here’s what SharonB wrote for TAST 2012 Week 4: Cretan Stitch
- You can read her instructions and see inspiring examples there.
- Here’s some creative inspiration for this stitch from the TAST 2012 stitchers.
Please follow her procedure and put a link to your published Cretan Stitch pictures in the comments of the latest TAST post here. Just click the post title, and scroll down to the comment section!
Also, if you wish, please post the link to your Cretan Stitch photos in this comment section, no matter when you get it done, because if you are following this blog, you’ll have a bonus benefit…
If you miss a stitch but then are able to work it later, go ahead and put your link on the matching Stitch of the Week post. Each week, I will round up ALL NEW stitch LINKS entered at this blog, whether they are from the current stitch or a past one. Yours won’t be lost back there on an old Stitch of the Week post! I will put them up Monday (noon-ish PST) in a weekly recap post, about 12 hours before I put up the Stitch of the Week.
Of course, I will be putting my TAST 2012 Re-run stitches right here on this blog, because that’s why I started it in the first place 🙂
