Stitch tutorial- Sinhalese chain stitch


 Here is another stitch tutorial for y’all.    

                                                                       Step 1: Draw 2 lines, cut 2 threads little longer than the lines (the extra length is to end the thread).Thread the needle with one thread,come up at ‘a’ and remove the needle.Thread the needle again with the second thread,come up at ‘b’ and remove the needle.

                                         





Step 2: Thread the needle with a second colour thread and come up to the right side of ‘a’ as shown.

                                          




Step 3: Pass the thread under both the threads (green) from left to right as shown.

                                        


Step 4: Go down at a point close to the left of ‘b’ and come up at ‘c’ which is inside the orange thread and right of the green thread.

                                        



Step 5: Pull the needle and pass it under both the green threads as shown .

                                           

Step 6: Go down at ‘d’ which is inside the first chain formed and to the left of the green thread and come up at a point little away from 'c' as shown.

                                         




Step 7: Continue working steps 5 and 6 until you reach the end.

                                         


Step 8: Go down at ‘x’ which is outside the chain, come up at the other side of the chain and go down again at ‘y’ which is also outside the chain to end this stitch.

                                         




Step 9: Pull both the green threads slightly,take them down and end.








This stitch seems like a complicated one when you read it but actually it’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it,only pressure point is to get the space even.

Happy stitching!
Anita.
