Brick Stitch

The brick stitch, also known as the long and short stitch, is usually used to fill in large areas of space.

It is known as the brick stitch because the pattern of stitches looks like laid bricks.

This stitch can look intimidating, but it really is pretty simple. The trick to successfully creating the brick stitch is to be sure to keep your stitches even and straight.
