Stitch of the Week - Cable Chain Stitch

By July 9, 2012

Follow me on:

The Cable Chain Stitch is a decorative members of the chain stitch family of surface embroidery stitches.

Because it resembles a linked chain like you would find in a heavy cable or jewelry, it can be used to imitate chains on projects, such as the chain on a ship's anchor, a necklace on a figure, or the chains holding up a swing.

Work the cable chain in a straight line, as shown here, or work a zigzag version to add interest to any embroidery project. You can check out the Patterns Section for FREE embroidery patterns and project ideas you can print and stitch!
