Flat Stitches

Basket Stitch

Similar in effect to Closed Herringbone. May be worked with more space between the stitches. Bring the needle up from the back of the fabric and insert it to the left and but slightly lower. Bring the needle up to the right and just below the beginning of the first stitch. Continue to end. Used to make a solid line or border.
