Starry Night Stitch (AKA: Milky Way)

The Starry Night stitch – sometimes known as the Milky Way stitch, looks fabulous when worked on dark sky areas of a canvas in white and a secondary color.  It positively twinkles like a sky full of stars!

The starry night stitch is worked in horizontal rows, starting at the left and working to the right for odd numbered rows. Turn the canvas over to work the even-numbered rows in the opposite direction.
