Chain stitch is again a decorative stitch, which involves a series of petal like stitches.
Step 1 : Take the needle out through the point a.
Step 2 : Again insert the needle at the point a and take it out partially through point b.
Step 3 : Twist the working thread around the needle.
Keep in mind : The thread should be parallel to the needle.
Step 4 : Tighten the loop by taking out the needle and insert the needle at a point outside the loop, near to point b.
You will get a petal like motif,
These motifs stitches in a series forms the chain stitch.
For chain stitch insert the needle again at point b, ( b turns a in the next motif) and continue the process.
This forms the chain stitch.
The back side of the stitch will look some what like this.
I ll share some of my chain stitch works in the next post.
Enjoy stitching !
