Ground Stitch (Bottensöm) (for Naversom)
This is another stitch used to create the open work designs worked with a single thread. To make things very confusing, this stitch is worked with straight stitches on the back, which gives diagonal stitches on the front! The stitches are worked from right to left and from the top down. This stitch takes the three threads of the fabric grid and pulls them together making them appear as one large thread when you are finished.
