Embroidery Stitch Library - Split Stitch

embroidery split stitch stitch library tutorial

Split stitch is another outline stitch and is similar to backstitch but with a bit more texture. Keep your stitches consistent lengths for a neat finish.

Step 1: You are going to work left to right again. Bring the needle up at A and then take the needle down at B, missing C. Pull the thread all the way through to complete the first stitch.
