TAST-week 5

The stitch for week 5 of the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge is the Chevron stitch. It is not necessarily one of the best stitches, but neither are some of the others when used alone. I dressed it up with detached chain, straight stitch and French knots.

Here is my ATC featuring the chevron stitch:





















I used six strands of DMC cotton floss for the chevron stitch and three strands for each of the other two colors.

I like the way you've 'dressed' it up. I should imagine the colour of this one looks pretty good alongside the cretan stitch green one.
