Damask Stitch

Damask Stitch is a name given to Satin stitch when worked upon linen for household purposes.

To work: Bring the needle from the back of the material to the front, and make a slanting stitch over the part to be embroidered. Bring out the needle close to where it first came out, but on the right side, put it down close to where it was put back, and continue to make these slanting stitches across the material until the space is filled in.
