TAST Knotted Cretan
This stitch is worse than my pet hate..the Long and Short stitch.
My colourful effort is not good either and I can't say whether many, or even any, are correctly knotted. I found I could manage the top sections but not the lower.
After many tries I found I was holding the thread wrongly and was trying to knot around the wrong bit.
The pink one is definitely not correct. No real Cretan stitch and just sort of tied. Grrr... I persevered.....after all TAST is about learning how to do the stitches.
The green is better and I think I am getting the hang of it.
Yes, the work is more even and the knots look right now. I have even turned the end bit.
This looks okay too.
Oh YES! After drawing two circles and having a guide I really got going and with great excitement and enthusiasm, kept going until the thread ran out.
Lastly I tried to curve the work and I was okay until the end bit. Looks like I need to work on those bends.
I take back my words about this stitch, Long/short is definitely worse for me. This one, once nutted out is lovely to do.
Thanks again Sharon for the stretching excercise.
