Judy ~ Cast On Stitch, TAST


This was a fun stitch! Because this SBS block has no flowers and no real spot to add any, I used the Cast On Stitch to embellish the neckline of Sue's dress. It seemed to work OK. Sure am glad I don't have to knit with a milliner's needle though!

I'm going to have to enlarge that pic to see what you did.

Looks like you got a flat spread with lots of cast ons??
I did about 10 & the last stitch was very close to the first foundation stitch. Yours reminds me of a picot in crochet. Nice idea to do that.

Makes a nice loopy look. I like that. Lacey looking.

Yes, I did it like the video with a larger stitch than Sharon uses, more like the bullion stitch. I was trying for a scalloped effect.....

Thanks, Susan. No flowers for me as this time SBS is up in the air on a swing!

Debra Spincic said...

It worked!

Pretty little embellishment for "Swinging Sue".

I didn't know Sue is a swinger! The cast-on stitch looks good on the neckline! Good idea.

Debra Spincic said...

Actually, it's her sister, Sinbonnet Sue, who is the swinger!

LOL!

No matter which Sue she is, the scallop is a nice touch.

That's why she's hiding her face. Those racy relatives.....

You really had me laughing with the idea of knitting with milliner's needles! yah, cast-on stitch-- I get it. :)
What a clever way to make the stitch work when you don't have the floral motifs available!

A very creative use of the stitch Judy. Sometimes I get as nice surprise with just how 'inventive' this group has to be to reach our goal, lol.

Very good use of the stitch Judy. You're good at thinking outside the box.
