Where to use it:
  • these short stitches are used for outlining in cross stitch, needlepoint, surface embroidery and counted thread designs
  • or for adding detail to a design, such as a vein in a leaf, or flower stalk
  • in a design where you want the look of a machine stitch (mimicking a sewing machine stitch)
  • often used to create lettering
What to use:
  • Kreinik Cord
  • Kreinik Very Fine #4 Braid (on 14- or 12-count fabrics)
  • Kreinik Silk Mori, one strand

How to do it:
Follow the diagram for needle and stitch placement. Come up at 1, down at 2, up at 3, down at 4, etc. On a chart, backstitching is often represented by a line. The chart's "Color Key" will usually tell you which thread to use for backstitching.
