The Woven stitch looks like the weaving of a basket. It is great for backgrounds because it quickly covers the fabric. You work this stitch in horizontal rows as shown. Be sure to include the short stitches, called compensation stitches, around your design area or you will have holes at the edges of your area. Compare these two examples, both called Woven stitch by various authors. The first one has compensation stitches, while the second one has open spaces.
