4. The wide and narrow versions of zigzag chain stitches are alternated in the first row. The three step zigzag chain stitches are worked one after another in the second row. V-shaped chain stitches in very light green [not clear at all] are worked on both sides of the zigzag chain stitch in the third row.

5. I worked some isolated stitches with zigzag chain stitch in these samples-
Row 1-pistil stitches and Italian border stitch
Row 2- detached chain stitches and Algerian eye variation.
Row 3- buttonhole wheel variation and triangular feather [this version of feather is commonly used to decorate some Indian ethnic embroideries] stitches.

6. Continuing on the same theme-
Row 1-oyster stitch and french knots.
Row 2-bullion knots and slipped detached chain stitches
Row 3- fly stitches and twisted chain stitches [ just thought looking at the seam ,wheat ear can also be worked like this]
