TAST Stitch 58 is Slipped Detached Chain stitch which is also known as Tulip stitch. It does look a little like a flower. This stitch really comes alive when you experiment with different threads or even use ribbon for the chain part and then change threads for the stitches you thread under the chain. Its a fun stitch and easy to work on either evenweave fabric or in a more freeform way on regular fabric. As usual click though to the tutorial on Slipped Detached Chain stitch and have fun.
