Stitch Diagrams

You have heard the names of a wide variety of embroidery stitches used in cross-stitch. Here you can learn from a description and a graphical display how to achieve these stitches.


Back Stitch


Bring the thread out at the right-hand side. Take a backward stitch over the required number of threads, bringing the needle out the same number of stitches in front of the place where the thread first emerged. Continue in this way, working from right to left in the required direction.

Remember that odd numbers come from the back of the fabric to the front and even numbers are inserted into the fabric. The actual positions of these numbers will vary from projec to project. This is just an example.
