TAST 12 - CRETAN STITCH
Cretan Stitch is one of the beginner stitches.
In the first row, I have worked a row of Cretan stitches followed by second row of cretan stitches by turning the fabric upside down and aligning the stitches, to give the appearance of the hexagon shape
In the second row, I have tried to stack cretan stitches one row upon the other.
In the third row, the cretan stitches are worked with long arms, to contain in between cretan stitches with a different color thread
In the fourth row, the sizes of the cretan stitches are varied according to the design line.
Cretan stitches are also used in Crazy Quilting Seam Treatments.
