Barred Chain Stitch

Barred Chain stitch


Like Chain Stitch, Barred Chain Stitch follows curves and straight lines. It is a easy to do stitch and can be done on any fabric. Although it can be worked using any thread, I prefer the cotton ones. ┬áThe stitch’s look depends on the design and different spacing will create different appearance. The best application of this stitch is stitching the stalks or stems of a plant.

The process

1. Do a Chain Stitch at A.

2. Next, do a Twisted Chain Stitch at B.

3. Then do another Chain Stitch at C.

4. Continue steps 2 and 3.
