Continental Tent

The continental tent stitch is probably the most common canvaswork slanted stitch. It is worked in straight rows or columns. The back will have diagonal stitches going over two canvas threads. This is a very good stitch for a piece that will have a lot of wear, like a foot stool or carpet. Start in the upper right corner, and work from right to left.
