Stem Stitch



This stitch is used for lines, outlines and the stems of flowers. It is done from left to right. Start at left end of guide line. Be sure to keep the thread below needle throughout. If the thread is held above the needle throughout, the stitch is called outline stitch. Note the interesting effect you get when you make a stitch with the thread above the needle and the next stitch with the thread below the needle.
