Roumanian Stitch (1)

Roumanian stitch, also known as the antique stitch, Indian filling stitch, Janina stitch, or Oriental stitch, is a name used for a technique whereby a long stitch is tied down in the centre by one, short slanting stitch. The Roumanian stitch should be differentiated from Roumanian couching, which uses multiple tying down stitches to 'couch' a long, laid thread.
