Russian Chain Stitch

Russian Chain Stitch

This stitch is generally found in Russian embroidery. Paired with three lazy daisy stitches Russian Chain Stitches can be used to embroider any climbing plants or borders. Two lazy daisy stitches join in the first stitch. Generally, this stitch is done in the reverse order.

The Process: 

1. Pull out the threaded needle through the fabric.

2. Insert the needle partially into the point it came up from and pull out the needle through another point keeping a distance.

3. Make the first stitch by loop the thread around the needle.

4. Make another lazy daisy stitch to the point where the first stitch was completed. This stitch’s direction would be left.

5. Pull out the threaded needle through the first stitch’s end point. Create another lazy daisy stitch to the right and complete the Russian Chain Stitch.
