Notes: This is a nice stitch that doesn’t curl as so often seen with individual stitches. An even number of chains is only required for these specific instructions. An even number isn’t literally required in every application, though. If you simply stagger the different stitch on top of the other, you can use any number of chains. When working a flat swatch, I will typically make the last stitch under the two outer vertical bars for stability. It isn’t a requirement and I don’t use it for all applications of the same stitch pattern. It’s solely a finishing technique.
