Interlocking Blanket Stitch

The interlocking blanket stitch is a variation on a blanket stitch, whereby two rows of blanket stitches are worked that interlock with each other. The two rows are worked separately and may be worked in the same colour or in two, often contrasting colours. The stitches may be worked very close to each other or clearly separate. Mary Thomas calls this stitch a double blanket stitch.
