The threaded back stitch is a variation of the basic embroidered back stitch. It has a wavy texture that makes a terrific decorative edge for clothing and accessories. The looped back stitch is another name for this stitch.
A single threaded back stitch takes one loop across your basic running stitch. A double threaded back stitch then loops back over the running stitch, forming to form a chain. Both stitches add complexity to your embroidery projects.
Here is how to embroider the threaded back stitch and the double threaded back stitch.
