Last week I wrote about 'Especially useful stitches to know' and Kelldandy commented that the Lazy Daisy Stitch should be added to the list. And she is totally right! The Lazy Daisy stitch is also known as the detached chain stitch. Another name for this stitch is the Tied Loop Stitch and that pretty much tells us how this easy-to-master stitch is done. But if you'd like a little more information check this video tutorial. Very often the Lazy Daisy Stitch is used for embroidering flowers. Lisa created this beautiful flowery piece using mainly Lazy Daisy stitches. However the Lazy Daisy Stitch is not just a 'flower' stitch, it's actually a very versatile stitch. I used it just a couple of days ago to stitch some mossy plants for example. It's also great as a fill stitch and wonderful in combination with other stitches like the French Knot. Hope this inspires you to explore the Daisy Stitch a bit more!
