Whipped chain stitch - Homespun

On October 3rd 2013


To form the chain stitch, bring the thread up at A, take the needle back through the same point and bring it up at B, making sure your thread is under the needle. Pull the thread until the
loop tightens and then repeat this process to form a row of the required length. This forms the foundation row. Another thread, usually of a differing colour, forms the whipping. Bring the needle up at the front of your work to the left and midway of the chain stitch. Pull the thread and take the needle from right to left under the next chain stitch, making sure you don’t penetrate the fabric. Pull the thread tightly and continue covering the chain stitch.
