Since the needle is always going in behind where the thread just came out and coming out ahead of the last stitch, all in a straight line – how do you backstitch (i.e. by hand) round a ninety-degree corner?
The best I can manage is to bring the needle out at the corner on the last stitch of the first side, ‘fill in’ the last gap as usual but bring the needle out on the corner for a second time instead of stitching ahead, then take an ordinary running stitch as the first stitch of the next side of the rectangle, thus leaving a visible ‘hole’ on the back of the stitching….
