Tied stitches are great to use for design elements, backgrounds, shading, geometric patterns and where you need a light to medium texture.

They are slower to work that many of the other stitches but are well worth the result.

The trick with tied stitches is to tie each stitch down as you go.  If they are a group of stitches, they too must be tied down before you start the next group.

Depending on your needlepoint canvas count, you may find that you have to thin the yarn out (using 2 ply instead of 3 or 4 ply) to make the stitch not so bulky. 

Experiment to find the right balance.
