Also known as: German knot, Snail trail
This stitch is done from right to left. The knots fall in between a trail of straight stitch. This stitch can be used for various different types of embroideries, especially in making stem patterns.
I will be working on a curved stitch line to show the flexibility of the stitch.
|Fig 1: Bring out the needle out from A. Put in the needle through B and bring it out from C, both which lie on either side of the stitch line.||Fig 2: Loop the thread around the needle as shown.|
|Fig 3: Pull out the needle and you will see a knot formed. continue with the procedure of making knots.|
|Fig 4: A completed line of coral stitch would look like this. It gives a feeling of a thread docked down with tiny stitches.|
