Two versions of the Raised Chain
From left to right
Single bar – first version
Worked over 2 bars – second version
The 3rd I moved across the bar, inserted the needle through the cloth on the right and came up on the left at the next bar below.
The 4th I stitched on the left and centre without catching the fabric.
The 5th I worked from top to bottom on the left side, reversed the work and repeated the chain.
I carried the thread across between the green bars on the first sample of the fan and in the second one, inserted the thread behind the cloth for each ‘petal’.
I found this an easy and enjoyable stitch.
