Whipped Stitches

Whipped stitches are a group of techniques in which there is a line of ‘foundation’ stitches and then a second thread that is ‘whipped’ over them vertically. 

The whipping thread does not enter the ground material, nor does it go back on itself.

See also the TRC Needles entries on interlaced stitches and threaded stitches.

Examples of a whipped stitch include: whipped running stitch and whipped stem stitch.
