Also known as: Detached chain stitch
This is often used to give petal designs and small floral patterns. It consists of a single loop of chain than the continuous pattern. Lazy daisy is one of the extremely easy stitches. This stitch need not be limited to just petals and leaves, but can be used for more complicated designs too.
To assist our lessons, I will be making a floral motiff. For that, I have made a focal point by marking a small ring as my stitch line. My stitches will begin at the edge of this ring. Note that I have used a multicolored thread and not threads of various colors to demonstrate this stitch.
Lazy daisy can be given a more filling effect by making layers of lazy daisies too. For that, you may do a lazy daisy stitch within a lazy daisy.
