Back Stitch


Uses:  Accent areas, Outlines,

You can use this simple stitch over one, two or more canvas threads in any direction.  Add it to other stitches for a finished look or use it in a straight line for a border.  One strand embridery floss, #3 Pearl or other thread in the needle can be used.  It all depends upon the effect you wish to create on the canvas. 


To work, follow the number pattern on the graph.  You will always come up a small distance from the last stitch and work your way back to the previous stitch.
