Lazy Daisy stitch, also known as detached chain stitch is a wonderful little looped stitch perfect for working small flowers.
It can be worked alone or in groups. When working this stitch, the trick is to apply a gentle amount of pressure otherwise the loop will close up.
It is also important to keep the couching stitch at the top of the loop consistent. Work a small stitch if you would like the loop to remain rounded, or work a larger stitch to give the loop a tip.
When working Lazy Daisy stitch you may find that the loop can appear twisted. This is caused from working against the direction of the thread. Watch my how to video below and I will demonstrate what I mean.
Have fun with this stitch, lazy daisy stitch is a must to have in your embroidery stitch repertoire, it is also perfect for working leaves.
