CRETAN STITCH:---This is a good filling stitch especially for leaf forms. It can also be used as a border for light effect.Work from bottom to top. Insert the needle from back front A, to the left of the double centre line. Go diagonally up and in at B keeping the thread above your work. Bring the needle out at C on the right of the double centre line. Just below the line AB. Go in at D coming out at E ; in at F, out at G; in at H and so on. Work alternately left and right until the shape is filled, always keeping the thread above the work.
