Chain stitch is easy once you get the hang of it, and it looks lovely as a decorative outline stitch for hand embroidery.
Here’s how to do it:
Stitch up through the fabric
Push the needle back through the fabric, but make sure you don’t pull it too tight so you are leaving a little loop.
Bring the needle back up through the fabric just below the top of the loop – like shown
Push the needle back through the fabric catching the top of the loop underneath the stitch to secure it in place.
Repeat these step to create the chain effect. You can try changing the size of the loops to make the chains longer or shorter.
