UP AND DOWN BUTTON HOLE STITCH:---This is used for edging. When worked in a circle or in a semi circle it gives a flower design. Holding the thread down with the left thumb make a buttonhole stitch insert the needle next to the front and bring it out at the point where the needle was tied previously. Slip the needle under the small horizontal bar and draw through.This is the first pair of parallel stitches . From now on you will be working parallel pairs of stitches with the spaced between them.
