Heavy Chain Stitch is a thick stitch. It gives a rich feeling to the embroidery work. Generally, this stitch is done with three or more layers of threads, so that the heavy look is prominent. Just like the reverse chain stitch, it starts from the reverse direction.
1. Pull out the threaded needle through A
2. Insert it through B to make a straight stitch.
3. Pull the needle out through C
4. Pass the threaded needle under the A-B straight stitch and insert it in C.
5. Pull out the threaded needle through D and repeat step 4.
6. Insert the needle in D.
7. Pull it out through E, pass the threaded needle under the newly formed two layers of chain stitches and insert the needle back in E. Remember not to poke the fabric.
8. Continue the steps 5 to 7 for rest of the embroidery.
