Fringe Stitch is used either in buttonholing or drawn-thread work. The thread is carried over a mesh before making the next stitch, thus forming a loop, which is secured in its place by the next stitch taken. (See Buttonhole.) The edges of plain material can also be fringed out and secured by a hemstitch. The fringe can be secured in clusters by a knotted stitch.
