The heavy chain stitch is a new stitch to me. I honestly tried this stitch at least 4 times following the directions in my embroidery book, but I’m still not sure I’m doing it right. I hesitate to show you my crazy video, but just know that it’s my version and could very well lead you astray!
Here is a great example by libbygirl of the heavy chain stitch being used as a decorative line in this sweet embroidered baby announcement.
Here’s another great example from needle n’thread. If you follow the link, there is also a great video showing you how to do this stitch.
