Also known as: Chinese Stitch

It is commonly found in chinese embroderies. Using contrasting threads will throw up the beauty of the design well.

Fig 3: You will see that a loop is formed at the stitch point B. Our aim would be to make such similar loops at each stitch point.
As the next action, take the needle under C-D from above.
  Fig 4: Now pass the needle under B-C from below. Continue this action of looping each stitch point by taking the needle under the stitches.

Fig 5: Your completed pattern would look like this.

NOTE:
Make sure that while taking the needle and thread under each running stitch, you do not pluck the fabric underneath. You can use a blunt needle to acheive this.
Make sure to leave the back stitch just a bit loose in order to allow the other thread to pass through it easily.
