Week 11 TAST Whipped Wheel Stitch

The stitch for week 11 of TAST is the Whipped Wheel stitch . Click on the image for a larger view.When I first looked at Sharon’s description of this stitch, I thought “Oh no!”. The Whipped Wheel was new to me and I did struggle. The online videos that usually help me were not as much of a help for this stitch.

It seems like a simple pattern of whipping around but it took me many tries to somewhat get it. I persisted and ended up with a simple page for my TAST 2012 sampler book. I wanted to stitch a shell and tried to stitch a half wheel but struggled with the pattern. In addition to understanding how to work with this stitch, I think that tension and the length of the base stitches are important.

    You perhaps could try with a thicker thread- like perlé n°5…

    I struggled a bit too, even though it seemed fairly simple after watching the video posted above. It’s hard to stay neat and even. Yours look good though 🙂
