TAST week 19: Half chevron

English name: Half chevron
Swedish name: ? (variation av flätsöm med sidostygn)

This was a new stitch for me, though I have of cause tried my hand at both chevron and cretan stitches earlier during the TAST challenge,  so I kept it simple, tried to get familiar with the stitch. I like the effect you get when stitching multiple rows together and how much it changes depending on how you rotate the stitches/rows.

Along the right side you can also find two threaded variations of the stitch.

Having found that the Aurica yarn worked very well for both chevron and cretan before, it was likely the yarn would work for half chevron too. But it was a little tricky to get it at least a little even as the stitch has two different sides to it. If I hadn't been so tired when stitching it might've been easier to get the stitches nice and even, though.

What is TAST?

Take a Stitch Tuesday is a weekly embroidery challenge throughout the year by Sharon of Pin Tangle. You can read more about it here (or by clicking the TAST badge to the right).

To see what others have done in this stitch, check out the comments in this post on Pin Tangle. Be sure not to miss Sharon's lovely stitch variations in the actual post.
