What stitch is your outline done in?
Looks like two rows of chain stitch.
it is actually two rows of split stitch.
Thanks for clarifying that. I don't use split stitch. I go with chain. I never liked the look of the split in the diagrams--I should have known better. None of the stitches "stitched" are identical to the way they look in the diagrams. It is actually quite attractive. I will have to incorporate some of it in my work. Probably uses half the thread and half the time.
I use split stitch more than any other. If you keep your stitches small and close together, it looks alot like a chain stitch, but is much faster and easier!
