Simple Loop Stitch

The simple loop stitch is a variation on a running stitch, but instead of the thread being pulled tight so that it lies flat on the surface of the cloth, a small loop is made.

The loop is not fastened down to the ground material and it is easy to pull out of shape if the stitch is widely spaced. If, however, numerous loops are worked very close to each other, it will stay in shape. The loops can be made the same size by using a small stick (such as a match stick) or simply by eye when worked by a more experienced embroiderer.
