Single Satin stitch is also known as straight stitch and stroke stitch.
This simple stitch is made of single isolated stitches. This stitch can be worked in a regular or irregular manner, in a uniform or varying size.
Single satin stitch is simple to work, with the only concern being that the stitches should not be too long or too loose. Contrasting threads adds interest particularly when worked in a free manner at different angles. Straight stitch is often used to illustrate grass and other landscape details.
