MooshieStitch Monday: Interlaced Cable Chain Stitch (& TAST Anniversary)



Have you heard of the TAST challenge?

It stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday and is found on Sharon B's Pintangle blog.


The basics of Take A Stitch Tuesday: to challenge stitchers of all skill levels to learn a new stitch a week or if you already know it, experiment with that stitch.


Why am I bringing this up?

Because in 2017, TAST is celebrating it's 10 year anniversary!!

How cool to think that a stitching challenge has been going online for a decade!


To celebrate the 10 year anniversary, I completed the Interlaced Cable Chain Stitch.


I chose the Interlaced Cable Chain Stitch, because it is a stitch that I left off from when I was participating in the TAST challenge back in 2013 through 2015.


Here is a great tutorial on Pintangle from Sharon on how to work the Interlaced Cable Chain Stitch.

Just for fun, I decided to add onto the stitch - so I did another two rows of the cable chain above and below.


I like to draw a line in water soluble pen to keep my stitching as straight as possible.


Here it is finished.



Sharon re-started last week with stitch #69 - Magic Chain Stitch. Check it out!

More information about the TAST challenge, guidelines, and stitch list by number can be found here.

Hi! I'm Michelle (aka Mooshie) and I've been stitching since 2007. I own more embroidery hoops than I will ever need and am a borderline hoarder of floss.

You can find me on my blog, MooshieStitch, Instagram, and on Etsy.
