Blog > Detached chain or lazy daisy

Detached chain stitch or lazy daisy: A single stitch is formed at a time for interesting leaves and a circle of stitches makes a lazy daisy flower. Come up and make a loop. Take the needle and ribbon all the way to the back, holding the loop in place. Come up inside the loop and secure it in place with a tiny stab stitch. Take the needle and ribbon all the way to the back before coming up to make the next stitch. Use a gentle, even tension so that the ribbon does not scrunch up and add a bead or French knot in the centre of a flower. Stitch diagram is © Metz Press and Di van Niekerk
