Straight stitch

Also known as stroke stitch or flat stitch, the straight stitch is one of the most - if not THE most - basic embroidery stitch, as it is made without crossing or looping the thread. 

Bring the thread to the front in A.

Take the needle to the back in B.

Pull the thread through and bring to the front in C, etc.

The straight stitch can be stitched in any direction and to any length, and forms the basis for many other stitches. Here it is stitched horizontally.

This stitch is used to form broken or unbroken lines or starbursts, fill shapes, and create geometric designs.
