The Bosnian stitch can be used in a surface embroidery, freestyle or counted thread embroidery project where a zigzag line is needed. There are several different ways the stitch can be worked, and two variations are given in the article.
The first step features a method for working the Bosnian stitch on one pass, while the second step shows a quick-stitch method that is worked in two passes, giving you the flexibility to work the stitch in two colors.
Regardless of the method you select, this stitch should be worked while having the embroidery fabric held taut in an embroidery hoop for best results. This will ensure that the stitches are not worked too tightly or loosely.
