Cretan Stitch

The Top seam is Cretan Stitch with long arms and narrow space between the arms and trimmed with beads as I did on my teaching sample…thread is 2 strands of cotton floss.

While I was stitching the top seam I thought that if I can do very long arms then I can do very short arms on the stitch…The Bottom row is the same width and same spacing between the arms as the top seam but has very short arms on the stitch creating very deep Vs, making for a visually very different look to the first seam…O have also arranged the beads in a different pattern just for variety…Thread is size 5 cotton pearl.
