    Hungarian Stitch Instructions & Diagram

    You can see the diagram of this stitch below. 
    • Secure your thread on the backside of the canvas by making a small knot.
    • Insert the needle from the back of the canvas to the front at the bottom.
    • Move the needle vertically across the canvas, skipping one intersection of the canvas, and insert the needle from front to back.
    • Bring the needle down through the back of the canvas and insert it into the lower right intersection of the first stitch.
    • Then go up to the upper right intersection to the second point (make sure you are skipping four lines of the canvas).
    • Repeat the vertical stitches in the same order: One stitch skipping two threads of the canvas and one stitch skipping four threads of the canvas.
