TAST Week 34

Week 34 - Linked Double
Linked Double stitch was the stitch challenge for Week 34.  There were not a lot of resources out there to help with this particular one as it is a combination of a chain and twisted chain stitch - so I am not even sure I was able to complete this stitch completely - but it "looks" similar to others. . .

Sharon at TAST 2012 states "this is a marvellous stitch as it will follow a curve well and lends itself to all sorts of interesting experimentation.  You can widen the chain stitches and play with spacing.  It looks particularly effective if you use a thread with a firm twist.  Silk ribbon also works well with this stitch. It lends itself to being embellished with beads too".

I only used 2 strands of floss for this stitch.
