- Skip some space and come up through the fabric at B. Then place your needle under the stitch you made at C.
- Come back down through the same hole at D. Leave the thread loose as pictured.
- Skip some space again, coming up at E then placing your needle through the stitch at F.
- Pull the thread gently at E to tighten the loops from the previous step. If you need to you can do this before removing the needle so the stitches don’t pull too tight.
