TAST Week 51 Chained Bar Stitch – Details 461 and 462 December 29th, 2007

I have done Chained Bar, the TAST Week 51 Stitch on one of the unfinished Christmas Stockings. I worked 4 lots of bars along the seam so that they crossed back and forward acrosse the seam line but the undulations formed are so slight that they are barely visible.

Seam before detail 462This seam on the same stocking has always annoyed me because the front of the train is chopped off but tonight when I was working on te chained bar stitch I realized that the front of the train would still be in the seam which means that by unpicking the seam and nicking the fabric either side of the section that I wanted I could lift the train over the seam in the same way that I did the design on the Pink block.

To finish the seam I did a black buttonhole stitch which extends the black background around the train.

    And it looks a bit like train track! Okay, so the stitching is holding that part of the seam secure, then? I like your gentle undulation. Something similar is in the back of my mind for Ati’s grandmother’s block – not so gentle, probably. =)

    What a perfect solution, Annie. I love your innovation.
