This stitch looks like the long-tailed daisy done in a zigzag manner. Being a motif stitch, it can be used comfortably for light borders and with other embellishments.
|Fig 1: We begin by doing a long tailed daisy with the start point on A. The loop is angled at about 45 degrees since we are making a zig zag pattern.
While making the ‘tail’, before going in through the fabric, we wrap the thread around the needle as shown in the illustration.
|Fig 2: Then, the needle is put in through C and brought out through D, again at an angle of about 45 degrees.
Next, loop the thread around the needle as shown. This is to make the next long-tailed daisy.
|Fig 3: Continue this procedure of making long tailed daisies at 45 degree angles.|
|Fig 4: This illustration shows a portion of the feathered chain stitch.|
