Crewel Stitch. Sometimes called Stem stitch, the most useful of all stitches for outlines, veins, stems, etc. It may be used either in large or small form, and is adaptable to most minute curves and lines. Draw a line, begin at the bottom and work upwards. Keeping the needle pointed downwards, take a small stitch each time as in the illustration, and repeat for the length required.
