Working from top to bottom, bring the needle up at and reinsert at 1 to create a loop; do not pull the thread taut. Bring the needle back up at 2, keeping the needle above the loop and gently pulling the needle toward you to tighten the loop flush to the fabric. Repeat by inserting the needle at 2 to form a loop and bring the needle up at 3. Tack the last loop down with a straight stitch.
