Split Stitch

Spacer 10x10 pixels

Working from left to right, bring the needle up at 1, insert at 2, and bring the needle up near the right end of the previous stitch (between 1 and 2, at 3), inserting the needle into the thread to split the thread in two. When you're working with multiple strands of thread, insert the needle between the strands.
