Today, I have a really cool interlaced chain tutorial from the book The Quilter's Stitch Bible: The Essential Illustrated Reference to Over 200 Stitches with Easy to Follow Diagrams to share with you. I think it's really cool all the variations you can make by simple changing where you do your second rounds of stitching on the base chain. Another really cool thing about this book is that it shows you what the stitches look like from behind.
Click on this page from The Quilter's Stitch Bible: The Essential Illustrated Reference to Over 200 Stitches with Easy to Follow Diagrams to enlarge and read how to stitch an embroidered chain and then build on it to make an interlaced second round.
