Petal Chain Stitch is part of the Chain Stitch family. It is a very beautiful stitch that looks awesome when worked on.
What you will need?
- Any fabric.
- Embroidery hoop, 15cm (6″) (Bigger if you are working on a larger design) ( You can purchase a set of 6 hoops from Amazon for your basic needs.)
- Tapestry needle
- Embroidery thread (You can buy this pack of 36 shades of the DMC embroidery floss.)
How many strands of floss do you need for making the Petal Chain Stitch?
You can use all 6 strands of the floss. But if you are working on a finer design, then start with 2 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design. I have used all 6 strands of floss for this design.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the Petal Chain Stitch
1. You can make a curved line to work this stitch or just make it without the need of the lines, as this is pretty easy to work on. Bring the thread up at point A and insert the needle from point B to Point C. Pull the thread.
2. Now make a chain stitch from the middle of the stitches that have formed. Point D will be close to point C here. Insert the needle from point D to point E. Keep the floss under the needle and pull the thread up.
3. Form a chain stitch by inserting the needle from point F and continue on the petal chain to point G. Again, make a back stitch from point H to point I.
4. Continue working in a similar fashion for rest of the design.
