The chain stitch is a looped stitch that can be worked along a curved or straight line.
To work the basic chain stitch, start with a lazy daisy stitch and instead of finishing with an anchoring stitch, continue with a new loop. Finish the line with an anchoring stitch.
Done over a foundation of a simple chain stitch, the whipped chain stitch gives the appearance of a cord and looks best if done with a contrasting colored thread.
Starting at the beginning of the line and on one side,take first the thread over and then through each loop of the chain.
As the name suggests the twisted chain stitch is a chain giving the impression of a rope.
I will be stitching from top to bottom. To do this stitch, you need to be aware of the lazy daisy stitch. Simply shift the entry point of the loop to the left of the string you want to form.
