Bring your thread to the front of your work at A, ensuring it is two fabric threads below the centre. Take it to the back of your work through the centre. Pull the thread tightly to open the centre and then count another two fabric threads above A. Bring the thread to the front in this hole, being B. Repeat this until you form an eight-pointed star, making sure you take the thread back through the centre to finish off the stitch.
