TAST 58 Woven Detached Chain

This week’s stitch on Sharon B’s Pintangle blog is woven detached chain.  Here are my samples.  The black is done with perle #5, the grey is perle #8, the blue is perle #12, the light green is three strands of floss, and the darker green is done with soy luster.  I continued with the soy luster to make a vine (whipped stem stitch) with five leaves.


I can use a lot more practice with this one.  It's important to keep the tension even on the "leaves", otherwise there are lumply edges.
