Cross stitch - Homespun

On October 3rd 2013


Worked on even-weave fabric using a tapestry needle. Bring the thread up at the lower right hand side and take it through to the back of the fabric up and across the same number of threads. This is usually worked as up two and across two. Work the stitches to the end of the row to form the first row of half-crosses. Work back in the same manner to complete the cross. You may work this stitch either from left to right or right to left, but it’s vital that the top stitches sit in the same direction.
