Bring the thread to the front at A and then take it back as close as possible to A, resurfacing at B and taking the tip of the needle over the thread loop that has formed. Keeping your thumb over the loop, pull the thread firmly but not too tight to form a loop. Anchor the stitch by taking the thread through to the back of your work to form a holding stitch.
