To work Detached Chain, bring the thread up to the top of the canvas at point 1.  Hold the thread down with your left hand and bring the needle down at 1 again.  Poke the needle up at 2, and back down at 3.  This finishes the stitch.

 

Detached Chain can be created in all different directions on the canvas.

 

To make a larger stitch, spread the length between point 1 and 2.  You can create different variations by using thick or thin threads.
