Back stitch

Back stitch illustration

Back stitch is most often used to outline an area of a design.
Each back stitch is worked along one side of a square or diagonally across the square as indicated on the chart for that particular design. On Aida fabric the back stitch is worked across one block, on evenweave fabric the stitch is usually worked over 2 threads of the fabric.
When using back stitch in a design, these stitches are usualy worked last and with a finer thread. For example, if 2 strands of thread have been used to work a cross stitch pattern, the back stitch will be worked with one thread.
