How many strands of floss do you need for making the double threaded running stitch?
You can use all 6 strands of the floss. But if you are working on a finer design, then start with 2 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design.
Step by Step Pictorial Process of making the double threaded running stitch
1. Start with working a running stitch. With a contrasting thread, bring the needle from below the fabric at point A. Pass the needle under the stitch 1 of the running stitch, then again pass under the remaining stitches.
2, You will notice a wave-like pattern has formed with the yellow thread. Finish by passing the needle at the end of the design at point B. Pull the thread down and secure with a knot.
3. The first thread will look like this.
4. In a similar fashion, work on the next thread with another color thread.
5. End by taking the needle down and securing the thread with a knot.
