Back Stitch

The back stitch belongs to a class of individual stitches that are made backwards to the general direction of sewing. Back stitches are normally worked from right to left. The needle is brought out a short distance from the beginning of the line to be covered. It is then inserted again at the beginning of the line, thus taking a step backwards. The needle emerges beyond the point where it first started.
