Looped Running Stitch

This stitch is just a variety of the running stitch, which I have named. It incorporates the technique of Chinese stitch or Pekinese stitch. This is a very decorative stitch and can be experimented with threads of various colors over borders. Close layers of this stitch can create wonderful effects on a pattern.

You need to know the running stitch before doing this stitch. The knowledge of the Pekinese stitch will be very helpful.
