Chequered Chain Stitch

Chequered Chain Stitch is also known as Magic Chain or Magic Stitch. A bi-colored effect is achieved by using two contrasting thread colors. Alternate the colors by alternating the working thread for each chain loop as shown.

Step 1. Come up at A with both threads, make loop, go down next to A, and come up at B over one thread. Pull both threads thrown to form loop with first color.

Step 2. Make loop and go down next to B. Come up at C, keeping needle over second thread. Pull through to form loop with second color. Repeat from Step 1.
