Hello Everyone!
i'm working on a brimmed hat and am a little confused on how to fininsh it.

Basically, the brim is formed by folding over 5" of work around a moon shaped plastic template. The instrictions say to close the work with a running stitch. this is where i'm stuck. does anyone know if there are instructions somewhere on how to make this stitch?

Thanks!!

Running stitch is a simple sewing stitch where you end up with your stitches looking like this:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _

So, short stitches with equally short spaces in between them.
