CROSS STITCH:--This stitch is suitable to be applied on fabrics with small checks or thick yarns which can be counted to work. Cross stitch on closely woven fabrics, take thin canvas on to it before doing the embroidery. After the work is completed the yarns of the canvas can be pulled out leaving the embroidery directly on the fabric. stitches are worked diagonally from left to right or right to left along two parellel lines. After completing the first half of the crosses, work in the opposite direction filling in the second half of the crosses. If the design is irregular you can complete one cross at a time.
