This stitch is ideal for outlines, and it’s the one you’ll find you use the most.
Come up from the back at point 1, then go down at point 2. Come up at point 3, then go back to point 1 and bring the needle through to the back.
This is a great way to embellish a line of backstitch, adding thickness, texture or some extra colour.
Start with a line of backstitch. Come up at point 1. Slide the needle under the first backstitch from the top down. Slide the needle under the next stitch from the top down. Repeat. Bring the needle down at point 2 when you reach the end of the line of backstitch.
