Sometimes you want to use basic stitches but get a look that is tighter. Working through 3 loops is a great option to try when working your stitches. Each stitch actually has 3 loops, as previously discussed in the 3rd Loop/Horizontal Bar. When working through all 3 loops, you go under the Horizontal Bar to work your stitch. Using the photos, you'll notice that you work the stitch as normal, but rather than going through the Front and Back Loop, you go under the Horizontal Bar as well as the Front and Back Loops.
