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.  The 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

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

3. Then do another Chain Stitch at C.

4. Continue steps 2 and 3.
