TAST - Knotted and Inverted Feather stitch

This is my small sample for Knotted Feather stitch and Inverted Feather stitch.  This year I thought of making a pillow cover with the TAST stitches and decided the make stitches in round shape in the pillow so that the pillow becomes a stitch sampler for me.
Inverted feather stitch is suitable for creating border and necklines.  It gives a lace effect.  Here I have worked with three strands of anchor cotton embroidery thread.  I like to work with both the stitches and 2 more stitches gets added to my stitch list.  Thanks to Sharon.  For tutorials on Inverted feather stitch go here and for knotted feather stitch go here.


  1. I really like the idea of a pillow as a showpiece for your lovely stitching.

  2. What a clever idea to make a pillow of your TAST stitches.
    The Inverted Feather stitch is really good for borders.
    Ps. the link you put on Sharon's comment page is incorrect

  3. Thanks Connie, Queenie.
