The chain stitch with single spike is a variation on a chain stitch, whereby an extra step is included in order to create a single spike that comes out of one side of the chain stitch. This spike can be vertically, horizontally or diagonally worked. It may also be worked on alternating sides of a series of chain stitches, and so forth.

This type of stitch is normally used for free-style embroidery
