Running stitch is a great stitch to get you started. The idea is to space the stitches out evenly and be consistent with the stitch lengths.
I use a waste stitch to get started, hence the knot at the front. I cut this once I've got started.
Step 1: Bring the needle up at A.
Step 2: Take the needle down at B, you have your first running stitch.
Step 3: Bring the needle up at C and then take the needle down at D for your second stitch.
Step 4: Continue to the end of the line.
