Feathered Chain Stitch

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.

You need to be aware of the long-tailed daisy stitch to be able to do this stitch. Knowledge of the zigzag chain stitch will be good.

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 β€˜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.
