Bring your thread to the front of your work on the line of your design. Take a small stitch backwards then bring your needle up a stitch’s width in front of the first stitch. Now continue in this way going back to the previous stitch and coming up in front of the stitch you have just made. Aim to keep your stitches equal in length. If the design is quite curvy make your stitches smaller to ensure a smooth line.
This stitch can be used for fine lines and outlining.
