Whipped Chain Stitch

Done over a foundation of chain stitch, this stitch gives a whipped appearance and looks best if done with a contrasting colored thread.

Fig 1: Lay a foundation of chain stitch.
Use a contrasting thread and bring it out from A.
Take the thread through each loop of chain made to give a whipped appearance.
Fig 3: The finished pattern would look as shown.
