I'm not sure what exactly I'm looking for on the machine, but wondered if it did a chain stitch of some sort?

No, not a perfect chain stitch but there is a decorative stitch that looks a little like one. I have not tested this though. Perhaps there is someone else here that has tried it.

To do a real chain stitch on a sewing machine, you do need something to function more like a looper, and you can't use a regular bobbin in a bobbin case at all to do that. So, no that machine does not make a real functional chain stitch with anything acting like a looper to do that at all.

Some older machines (like some Singer Touch and Sews and such, or some other brands did have some stuff you could switch out though, to get a one thread chain, by having a little piece more flip back and forth in the bobbin area, instead of having a bobbin of thread in there. Also if you got a serger, you might have a real chain stitch there. Or just a real chain stitch machine maybe.

But you got some decorative still only a real lock stitch kind of stitch motif's that would make more a fake and just visually looking like a chain stitch kind of thing. Visually, it would look like a bunch of triangles set on their sides and overlapping each other. It would look better and show up more that way, if not just using regular thread or 40 weight embroidery thread, and instead using some other even thicker kind of thread, at least as just the top thread, and bobbin fill in the bottom, and then you would probably want to change your machine tensions a bit, just to still bring that thicker thread down to the bottom of your work when sewing out those little triangle maybe.

Or you could even try it, with the thicker decorative thread in the bobbin, and the thinner bobbin fill or such in the top of the machine too. Just sew on your fabric more turned over and upside down then if you want to do that.

The ones to play with there for that kind of effect and thing would be Decorative patterns #28, 29, and 58. And maybe even #30. Have fun!
