Simple embroidery stitch that starts with a row of simple back stitches. With a blunt needle, the yarn is then looped through the stitches. This can be done on fabric, of course, but is also beautiful on knitted or crocheted pieces.
Embroidery is one of my favorite craft mediums. It’s the perfect ‘lap’ project to work on while watching a movie and I love that I can pick up my project, work on a few stitches and just as easily put it down again.
