Satin Stitch

The satin stitch is a widely used embroidery technique worked in close, parallel rows. They are used to fill in all or part of a design. The term satin stitch derives its name from its similarity to the shiny appearance of satin cloth, especially when a floss silk or a mercerised cotton thread is used for the embroidery.
