Overlapping Stitches allow you to shift the connectors between Offset Runs by a few stitches to prevent stitches building up at the joins. Also, the connectors are less visible if they are not in one line.
To change the number of overlapping stitches
1. Select the Compound Chenille object. 2. Right-click the Compound Chenille icon. The Effects > Compound Chenille tab opens
3 Enter the number of overlapping stitches between the offset runs. 4 Click OK.
