Week 4 TAST Cretan stitch

The stitch for week 4 of TAST is the Cretan stitch. This was my first time working with this stitch. I struggled a little and needed more practice than the other stitches so far. This is my second attempt at a Cretan sampler. I know that it is not very good but I am glad that I attempted and practiced this stitch.

Top row: closed Cretan stitch and open Cretan stitch

Middle row: overlapped open Cretan stitch and closed Cretan stitch in a curved shape

Bottom row: open Cretan stitch pattern

    You got the hang of the stitch. I don’t think I ever really got it.
