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.


Outline Stitch


Outline Stitch

The Outline stitch is very simple to work and resembles stem stitch. This stitch creates a neat, twisted line which twists in the reverse direction to a line of stem stitches. It is worked in a similar manner to stem stitch. The difference is that the thread always lies to the left of the needle. If the thread lies to the right the stitch becomes stem stitch.

Work from left to right taking small regular stitches with a forwards and backwards motion along the line of the design. The thread is kept to the left of the needle after picking up a small piece of material.
