Detached Twisted Fly Stitch

The detached twisted fly stitch is a variation on the fly stitch, in which a loop is created by crossing over the two arms of the stitch.

The loop is fastened in place with a small stitch at the apex of the curve. This form can be found with the stitches close together or detached. This stitch type is used for free-style embroidery and is associated with Saudi Arabian and Yemeni embroidery.
