Buttonhole Stitch

The buttonhole stitch (also known as button stitch) is a technique used in embroidery and for embroidered lace. It is very similar to the blanket stitch. It is called buttonhole stitch when the stitches are packed closely together and blanket stitch (USA: blanket edge) when they are more evenly spaced out.
