The detached chain stitch is often called a tall chain stitch, loops
stitch, tied loop stitch, picot stitch and knotted knot stitch. This
stitch is often worked in a circle to form a flower motif and as a
result known as lazy daisy stitch or daisy stitch.
Bring the needle up through the fabric and hold the thread with the
left thumb. Insert the needle back into where it first came out. Take
the needle through the fabric bringing the point of the needle out a
short space away. Pull the needle through with the thread under the
needle point. The loop is then fastened with a small stitch.
Detached chain stitch can be used to make leaves and flower shapes.
This stitch can also be worked either with a double or triple loop to
form more complex designs. It can be used to make scattered filling.
