This stitch can be easily done to make a variety of effects. As the name suggests, two straight stitches are connected to form an arrow shape. A series of such arrows can create nice looking borders or can be creatively used in pattern designing. These arrows can be used horizontally to form easy zig-zag patterns too. It can also take on curves pretty well.
You need to know the straight stitch to be able to continue. This stitch will be illustrated between 3 parallel curved stitch lines- A, B, C.
