ILLUSTRATION 219 (Slip Stitch).--Draw
the needle through the back part of a foundation chain stitch, or in
the course of the work through the back part of a stitch of the
preceding row, wind the cotton round the needle, and draw it through
the stitch and loop on the needle. The illustration shows a number of
slip stitches, the last of which is left quite loose; the arrow marks
the place where the needle is to be inserted for the next stitch.
ILLUSTRATION 220 (Double Stitch).--These
are worked nearly like the preceding ones. Draw the cotton as a loop
through the back part of a stitch, wind the cotton round the needle,
and draw it through the two loops on the needle.
ILLUSTRATION 221.--These double
stitches are worked nearly like the preceding ones; the 1st row is
worked like that of No. 220; in the following ones insert the needle
into the two upper sides of a stitch of the preceding row.
ILLUSTRATION 222 (The Ribbed
Stitch).--This stitch is worked backwards and forwards--that is,
the right and wrong sides are worked together, which forms the raised
ribs. Insert the needle always into the back part of every stitch.
Work 1 chain stitch at the end of every row, which is not worked,
however, in the following row.
