Stitch Details

Long Stitch Variation: Mountain - Instructions

You can see the diagram of this stitch below. 

  • Insert the needle (from back to front) and make a small knot to secure the thread behind the canvas
  • Then, make a sequence of four long stitches (two at the ends extending further to the sides and the other two further inwards) using the same canvas hole for the top point, simulating a ∧ (mountain) pattern
  • Within the sequence the length of the stitches does not have to be the same, you can make some a little longer than others depending on the space you have available
  • Continue making triangles simulating mountain peaks to create an interesting look
