Back stitch is made by taking the thread backward than the conventional forward motion, and thus the name. It is a very flexible to follow curves and bends in a design. There are no spaces between each stich and so gives a continuous appearance. Cross stitch patterns use them too. Like the running stitch, back stitch also lays a foundation for many variations over it.
