is a complicated variation of the Chain Stitch
, that make a solid, packed
leaf or petal shape.
Start with a single Twisted Chain Stitch
thread the needle under the stitch as shown, without piercing
the fabric (Step 1). Next, make a regular Chain Stitch
around the first one (Step
2). Follow the diagram for needle placement. Pull the
second stitch tight, being careful to keep the loop outside
and alongside the first stitch. Finally, secure the second
stitch with a small anchoring stitch (Step 3).
