Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 266: Laced Back Stitch

It is time for a new set of five embroidery stitches. First out is a manipulated stitch, well-known, easy, and with a descriptive name - Laced Back Stitch. Just reading the name most of you will know how to stitch it.

Just for fun, you can follow these photos:

Start with a line of Back Stitch.

Change to another thread for the lacing. 

Go under the thread only.  Down...

up... Down, up, down, up down, up...

Choose between tight and loose loops - or use both.

Anchor at the end.


Add lines of Laced Back Stitch to these three samplers.


  1. I like this with the different colors.

  2. I like the look of these laced stitches. I struggle with keeping the loops even and in place though.

  3. And then there is always double laced back stitch as well...!
