Work this in the same manner as stem stitch to create the foundation stitching. To whip the stitch, bring the thread up on the left-hand side, ensuring it’s in the centre of the stitch. Take the thread over the foundation stitch and back under the next stitch. Continue working it over and under the foundation stitches, making sure you don’t pierce the fabric.
