Turkey Stitch (also known as Velvet Stitch & Ghiordes Knot) : A long looped thread is anchored to the fabric with tiny stay stitches. Turkey stitch is a wonderful versatile stitch when you want to add a fluffy texture in your design. Make stitches close together when filling in shapes for a cat's fur or further apart when filling in foliage, etc. Note: in some instruction it suggests using a knitting needle or similar to wind your thread around to ensure your loops are of even length.
