Learning how to do a chain stitch is easy once you get the hang of it. I don’t use this stitch a lot in my patterns, but I think I might need to. It’s great for adding embellishment to your projects or even making letters. It’s sort of like a lazy daisy stitch, but it’s in a chain. Hence the name “chain stitch.”
The chain stitch can be a little tricky, but once you get it down, it’s not too hard. Bring needle up and back down at 1, leaving a loop. Bring needle up at 2, through the middle of the loop. Pull slightly on thread to tighten. Bring needle back down at 2 and repeat the chain. End chain with a small straight stitch to tack it down.
Rather than try to explain it to you with words, I made a video! To learn how to do a chain stitch, take a look at my tutorial. You can click the video below or check it out on my YouTube channel.
