Explanation:
Fly stitch is also known as 'Y' stitch and open loop stitch. Fly stitch is worked easily since it is made up of a V-shaped loop which is then tied down by a vertical straight stitch. To begin Fly stitch, bring the thread through the fabric out at the top and to the left of the line that is to be worked. Hold the thread down with the left thumb and insert the needle a small space, level and to the right of where the thread first came out. Make a small stitch downwards to the centre. With the thread wrapped under the needle, pull it through the fabric and secure it in position with a small loop.

Tack. Jag har redan fått reda på att det kallas "rak kråkspark" (av Husqvarna i alla fall), men din sitereferens var inte så dum, eftersom jag har en miljon andra stygn att översätta också.
