Open Chain Stitch

Open Chain Stitch is also known as Ladder Stitch or Roman Chain or Square Chain. This is worked from top to bottom. Secure the last loop with a straight stitch at each corner. Draw parallel guidelines on your fabric before beginning.

Step 1. Come up at A; go down at B, looping thread under needle; and come up at C as shown.

Step 2. Go down at D over previous stitch, coming up at E with thread under needle point. Repeat to create column.
