Feather Stitch

The feather stitch consists of a loop that is moved to the right and left of a central line. It is worked by a needle/thread being inserted slightly to the right of the main line of the pattern. The needle and thread are then pulled through to the surface along the line, keeping the rest of the thread under the needle in order to create a V-shape. A similar stitch is then made on the left hand side of the line and the stitch is repeated.
