This variety of running stitch gives a wavy effect to the pattern. It looks beautiful when a few close layers of it is created.
|Fig 1: Lay the foundation by doing a running stitch.
Bring out another thread out near the first stitch and pass the needle under it from the top.
|Fig 2: Then pass it through the second stitch from the bottom. Continue this action of taking the needle under each stitch from the top and bottom alternately.|
|Fig 3 : A finished line of laced running stitch would look like this.|
