Braided chain stitch

Braided chain stitch

Braided Chain Stitch or Hungarian braided chain stitch is almost same as Heavy Chain Stitch. The main difference between the two stitches is in passing the working thread under/over the existing loops. In braided chain stitch, the thread is passed over the outer loop and under the inner loop but in heavy chain stitch, the thread is passed under both the loops.  Just like reverse chain stitch, it’s done from top to bottom.

1. Make a straight stitch.

2. Pull out the needle through a forward point.

3. Pass the working thread under the straight stitch (follow the first picture).

4. Take the needle in through the point it came out. After looping the thread, this looks like a lazy daisy stitch.

5. Pull out the needle through another point forward to the previous one.

6. Wrap the working thread around the straight stitch again and poke the needle in the point it came out from.

7. Pull out the needle through another forward point.

8. Pass the thread  over the outer loop and under the inner loop (Follow third picture).

9. Continue steps 7 and 8.
