As we go through the alphabet, you should learn to make this stem



which begins with the first flat and bold stroke



It is used for the following letters: b d double-f f h k l [long] s [long] double-s [long] sf l b double-l bl [long] sl and, to give them proper shape, make the top slightly thicker than the stem, which is easily done if the first stroke is reversed and then turned on itself: b d f double-f h k l l l [swash] l h b [long] s [long] double-s l [swash] l.
