Capturing Stitch

The Capturing Stitch is used for borders or as an all-over stitch.

To Work: Bring the needle to the surface of the material. Make a small stitch, bringing out the needle a little further on (a). 

Put the needle in where it went in before, and bring it out halfway down the line made by the half stitch, and inside of it (b). 

Make a similar stitch in any direction so that it crosses over the second line of thread (c). Thus the thread always crosses a line at the half.

This particular stitch is a great stitch to use when you need a quick and easy way to fill space with a design but yet keep the design light and airy.
