Step 1

WORK your back­stitch once you’ve fin­ished the cross stitch. To se­cure your thread, weave it through the back of your stitches, then bring your nee­dle up to the sur­face.

Step 2

MAKE each back­stitch over one thread of fabric on aida and two threads if you work on even­weave. Fol­low the chart to see where to place each one.

Step 2

KEEP your thread as taut as pos­si­ble to pre­vent the knot be­com­ing loose. Gently pull your thread through to tighten the knot, so that it sits neatly on the sur­face.
