Holbein Stitch

This is an old embroidery stitch style, mainly used in Blackwork or Assisi embroidery. This stitch is also known as double running stitch, line stitch, Spanish stitch or two-sided line stitch. It can be worked in straight lines, diagonally or in zigzag lines. This stitch gives an identical look on both sides of the fabric. This is a counted thread stitch.

The process:

1. Draw a pattern.

2. Start the run stitch following the design.

3. After completing one round of running stitch, continue the stitches in the blank spaces of the same line in a reverse order.
