Raised Chain Stitch/ Raised Chain Band is also done in two stages like the Butterfly Chain Stitches. One, doing the straight stitches and then creating knots/ loops over each straight stitch. It’s generally used in borders or in some fillings also. Although it does not look like a Chain stitch but the second loop, is done like one.
- To embroider Raised Chain Band start by doing a series of parallel straight stitches.
- Now, pull out a Pink threaded needle from A.
- Wrap the first straight stitch (B-C) with the pink thread without plucking the fabric. Please see the second image for clear understanding.
- At this point, keeping the just created small loop on the right, take the needle under the B-C stitch from A’s direction and create a Chain loop. Please see the third image for better understanding as the explanation is not enough to make the process understandable.
