Pekinese Stitch - (Textile, Embroidery, Chinese)

Pekinese Stitch - (Textile, Embroidery, Chinese) In applying the Pekinese Stitch first, a backstitch is laid down, with stitches that are fairly long and loose. Then, with a blunt needle, the Pekinese Stitch itself is laced through the backstitch segments, going forward two and back through one to form a series of loops. The finished appearance can differ depending upon the kinds of threads or floss used, the size of the stitches, and how firmly the thread is pulled. Among Chinese embroideries, the Pekinese Stitch has been used most often for linear elements, rather than as fillings for large areas.
