Coral Stitch. May be worked as single, double, treble, or more. Draw two parallel lines as guides. Bring the needle up to the right side of the material, hold the thread down under the left thumb, make a stitch on the line to the right, bringing up the needle over the thread which is still held down ; release the thread and draw it up. Proceed in a similar way to make stitches alternately to the left and right, holding down the thread each time. The top of each stitch must be level with the bottom of the last stitch worked. Double Coral has two, and treble Coral three side stitches. More may be added if desired.
