Zigzag Chain Stitch

Zigzag Chain Stitch is also known as Vandyke Chain Stitch. This is used as both a line and filling stitch, and you can work it in a circle to form a flower or star shape. Begin by making a chain loop.

Step 1. Come up at A inside first loop. Make second chain loop at an angle; go down next to A. Come up at B, go down next to B, and come up at C as shown.

Step 2. Continue to work on stitch having each chain loop as shown and altering angle of loops to create regular zigzag effect.
