This stitch consists of two small parallel backstitches right next to each other so that they form a single dot. They can be worked in a line, or scattered randomly like seeding stitch.
Blanche Caulfield’s version in her Dictionary of Needlework indicates that more than two stitches can be worked if a more substantial dot is required.
