The Loop Stitch is used in making very small leaves, and also as a powdering.

Embroidery Loop Stitch

To work: Bring the needle to the surface of the material, hold the thread down under the left thumb, put the needle back into the hole whence it came, and bring it out slightly further on (according to the size of loop required), still keeping the thread held down close to the material, so that it does not pass over the working thread which is being drawn through. Put in the needle again almost close to where it came out last, but over the loop thread. This makes a tiny stitch which holds the loop down.
