TAST 2012–Week 6–Chevron Stitch

This is my offering in Chevron Stitch for Week 6 of TAST over on Pintangle.
I think it has a bit of a Weeping Willow look about it and it incorporates Chevron Stitch, Half Chevron Stitch and Whipped Chevron Stitch.
It’s worked on shirt fabric – built in guidelines!
I used various perlé and other cotton yarns as well as a glittery fringed thread.
