Like Tulip Stitch, Detached Wheatear Stitch can be stitched separately without any specific pattern. It is one of the detached stitches of the Chain Stitch family. Although it looks similar to the bull’s head stitch, these stitches are different from each other. Sometimes, the difference is hard to identify from distance.
- Pull out the threaded needle through A, insert in B and bring it out at C.
- Insert the needle at B and bring it out through D, which is just opposite to B.
- Loop the thread around the intersection point of A-B and C-B stitch and then insert the needle at D.
- Detached Wheatear Stitch is completed.
