This variety gives a twisted effect like what you will see in a whipped running stitch.

Fig 3: Continue this process of taking the needle under each back stitch foundation to give it a twining effect.

 

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
