Stem Stitch

Stem stitch is typically used as an outline stitch and is particularly well-suited for curves.

1 Place a single stitch.
2 Come back up halfway through the previous stitch, placing the needle next to the thread, not through it.
3 Place the needle a little past the end of the previous stitch.
4 Pull the thread taut.
5 Repeat until the line or area where stem stitching is taking place is complete.
