The Border Stitch is an ornamental embroidery stitch. It is made by following a line or edge and working toward you. Each stitch is made like that of the Herringbone or Cat Stitch but the work proceeds from top to bottom (vertically), instead of from left to right (horizontally). See illustration above.
