Also know as: Tailored blanket stitch

This stitch serves the same purpose as what the blanket stitch does mainly, that is, secure fabric edgings. The difference is that we make little knots while making the blanket stitches. When worked closely, the edges would look more defined and bold.

You need to know the blanket stitch to be able to understand this tutorial.

I will work between two parallel stitch lines.

Fig 1: We start the way we usually do for a blanket stitch. Bring out the needle through A, taking it in through B and then out through C. Now, instead of just looping the thread around, wrap it around the needle from right to left, as shown.   Fig 2: Pull out the needle to make a knot on top. Continue this process, and you should get a finished portion like this.
