It can be used for wide, decorative lines. Do not space the chain links too closely.
Start with a little tack down stitch, and form the first chain link just like in reverse chain stitch.
Next, work jet another, of course bigger chain link into the tacking stitch.
The next chain stitch link is worked into the chain stitch before the last.
The rest of the line is worked the same. Work reverse chain stitches, always hanging the next chain link in the the one before the last.
