The Long Stitch can be used to make shapes and fillings by combining stitches of different lengths.

In this sample, the Long Stitch was stitched in clusters facing various directions and used to make a flower in the Rose Romance project (detail above), and is commonly used in Bargello.

This stitch has also been used in the Pear Trio, Ponderosa Pines and Bargello Hearts projects.

Directions for working the stitch can be found on the next page, and the Stitch Journal page on the third page.
