Chain Stitch Tutorial

Chain stitch is a versatile stitch in so much that you can create different effects by playing with the length of stitch and how tight you pull the loop. Chain stitch is a good stitch to use if you want to create thicker lines. While I have put this stitch in the 'outline category', chain stitch is also a useful filling stitch which can add some lovely texture to your piece.

Chain stitch is also used to make up the sweet little flower motif called Lazy Daisy, where each single chain stitch is sewn from a centre point.
