Stem Stitch

Stem Stitch step-by-step

1. Bring your needle up at your starting point.

2. Take a stitch but don't pull your thread all the way through.

3. Bring your needle up in the middle of the first stitch and just slightly to the side.

4. Pull your thread taught and take another stitch.

5. Come up in the middle of that stitch as your did before. Continue on this way until you have finished your line. (In this case, all the way around the cactus.) The stitches will wrap around each other sort of like a candy cane twist.
Note: commonly used for outlines and flower stems (hence the name)
