Working the Satin Stitch on a Needlepoint Canvas

Satin Stitch can be worked vertically, horizontally, or diagonally across any number of canvas threads.

It's also a perfect filling stitch for small areas, circles, triangles or areas that you would like to bring forward in the design, as satin stitch will sit higher on the canvas than basic tent stitches.

Projects worked in satin stitch tend to work up quicker, as multiple threads of canvas are crossed in a single stitch.
