Also known as : Tete de la Boeuf, Head of the Bull Stitch
This stitch is one of the few stand alone stitches of the chain stitch family. The name tells us that the stitch resembles the head of a bull. This stitch is often confused with detached wheatear stitch, since they look a lot like each other. But, there is a small difference in the way both are worked. The difference lies in the way the ‘horns’ of the bull is made.
You need to know the lazy daisy stitch to be able to do this stitch.
