Broad chain stitch
- Reverse chain stitch
As its alternative name of Reverse chain stitch suggests, this stitch is a version of chain stitch which is stitched in reverse. It starts with a small anchoring stitch through which the loop of the chain is threaded, and then each subsequent chain is stitched through the previous one.
Slightly confusingly, this stitch is not a wider version of chain stitch - see Open chain stitch.
