Darning Stitch (Stoppsöm) (for Naversom)
A heavier thread is used for the darning stitch, and it is doubled over. Thread your needle with the ends of the threads so there is a loop at the end of them. Make your knot by taking your needle under the fabric threads where you want to start. Then run your needle through the loop. The darning stitch is used for the border design starting at a corner and working right to left. The very corner stitch is not worked so that the pattern will be symmetrical with a mitered look. The darning stitch can also be used to outline heavier motifs such as a diamond in the center of a doily.
