Stitch Explorer Trellis Stitch

The stitch for February in the Stitch Explorer challenge run by Sharon B over on Pin Tangle is Trellis Stitch.

I GIVE UP------

I have been trying for 2 weeks to do Trellis Stitch .
I have enough samples to build a trellis fence around the barbecue area.
This is the best I can do.
The square is ok (just)
The upright circle is ok (just)
The Spiral Trellis sample ----well all I can say is that I have got something that is spiralling-sort of.
I have done it just in the nick of time and if I never do it again it will be too soon.




Here is a side view of the upright one showing the best section (don't ask to see the rest of it).




Do you get the feeling that this is my favourite stitch -I don't think so.

I don't think they are so bad at all Doreen! Its not bad at all. If you are coming - bring them in to the guild tomorrow and I will see if I can spot what you did to send things wobbly .

All due credit for perseverance. Remember, everything comes in useful at sometime and can always be 'adapted'.
Cheers

I tried this stitch too Doreen, and I'm not even remotely brave enough to show what I ended up with. As a matter of fact mine is residing in the local landfill. This stitch is NOT my friend!

I think you've done brilliantly, they look great, especially the spiral sample.

I think you have done a great job of the trellis stitch Doreen. But understand your frustration!

Get the feeling it might not be one you try in the future.
