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.


Stem Stitch


Stem Stitch

Stem stitches are worked from the left to right taking regular, small stitches along the line of the design.
Insert the needle into the fabric at the desired length, then exit halfway between the previous two points. The thread always emerges on the left side of the previous stitch. This stitch is used for flower stems, outlines, etc. It can also be used as a filling, rows of stem stitch worked closely together within a shape until it is filled completely.
