Whipped straight stitch 

 

 

Whipped straight stitch is most effective if you do not like making bullion knots.


 

Use thread, wool or ribbon and make a straight stitch. Come up where you started and pull the thread, wool or ribbon to tighten the stitch. Wrap the stitch with ribbon, thread or wool, depending in the texture that your require.

 

Make the wraps closely together as Anna did with her Irises, or make them further apart …there a no rules :))
