Threaded Stitches

Threaded stitches, also known as laced stitches, are a group of stitches characterised by a 'foundation’ stitch that is combined with a second thread.

The second thread is laced through the foundation stitch without entering the ground material and without going back on itself (contrary to the comparable interlaced stitches). The foundation stitch is normally applied first, in a long line, followed by the working of the secondary thread.

Examples of threaded stitches include: threaded back stitch; threaded chain stitch; guilloche stitch; overlapping herringbone stitch; laced insertion stitch; raised lattice band; twisted lattice stitch.
