This variety of stitch gives a wavy effect to the pattern and follows the same stitching pattern as the Laced running stitch.

Fig 1: Take another thread and needle and bring it out through A. Pass the needle under the stitch A-B, from above, as shown. Do not pluck the fabric underneath.   Fig 2: Now, pass the needle under the stitch B-C, from below, as shown. Again, do this without plucking the fabric underneath.

Fig 4: The completed pattern would show up 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
