Running Stitch

The patterns are a little more challenging than Cross Stitch but well worth the effort!

Back Stitch:

Come up in the least shared hole and down in the most shared hole. 

Can be used anywhere for a straight line but works best in areas of cross stitching.

The Holbein Stitch is a good alternative to the back stitch in areas where there are very few cross stitches.

Holbein Stitch Method 1 (bricked):

1st trip is shown in purple.  Notice how my stitches come up and go down at the lower left of a verticle thread.

2nd trip is shown in green.  Notice how the green stitches are sharing the same holes as the purple thread but care has been taken so they are in a straight line above the purple. 

This looks neat but may look a ltitle choppy.

1st trip is shown in purple.  Notice how my stitches come up and go down at the lower left of a verticle thread.

2nd trip is shown in green.  Notice how the green stitches are sharing the same holes as the purple thread but care has been taken so they come up below the purple thread and go down above it.

are in a straight line above the purple. 

This method looks neater, smoother and is my prefered method.

Holebein Stitch Method 3:

Piercing the threads on th return trip...

...sorry I do not have a picture of the pierced threads on this page yet...
