Fly stitch is an open detached chain stitch with many possible variations.
It is worked in the shape of a “V” or “Y” depending on the lenght of the anchoring stitch.

  • Bring the thread through at the top left and hold it down with the left thumb. Insert the needle to the right on the same level, a little distance from where the thread first emerged, and take a small stitch downward to the center with the thread below the needle.
  • Pull through and insert the needle again below the stitch at the center (A) and bring it through in position for the next stitch.
  • This stitch may be worked singly or in horizontal rows ad in (A) or vertically ad in (B).
