Stab Stitch

Sketch of a stab stitch. Sketch of a stab stitch.

The stab stitch is often used in couching or laid work. The thread goes up, over the thread to be held in place, and then down through the same hole. The thread then passes along the reverse side of the ground material to the position of the next stitch.
