These bands on section 27 of the For the Love of Stitching band sampler are worked so close together that I will cover them all in one. They are all part of chain stitch family

Row 1 is  a form of triple chain

Row 2 is another form of triple chain which is called waved chain

Row 3 is slipped detached chain worked in a line.

Row 4 is zig zag chain stitch

Thread:

The row is worked in DMC cotton perle #5 and perle #8 which was hand dyed by me.
