Stitch 18: Half Chevron

Still catching up with TAST stitches. Still working on the same doodle cloths.

 (Click on the photos to see the stitches up close.)

 I used the half chevron stitch to add the green grass beneath the wheat. Nothing is even, but that was the point. I used two different green strands of floss for this. Nothing is wrong with the color, but I was hoping the differences would show more. I guess my colors were too close. Even better, for this I should have used the crossed buttonhole, maybe three or four layers.

On this cloth, the half chevron is the pink line on the green above the picture. I think I pulled the thread out of my ort jar, and I don't know/remember what it is. It looks like it had been twisted with another thread and it glossier than any of my cotton threads and not much thicker than a strand of floss.
