Stitch of the Month
April 1999: Upright Cross

by Beth Robertson

This stitch is also called the Straight Cross. It is another great stitch for small areas and provides great texture. This stitch is a great substitute for Turkey Work or French Knots. For less texture, use a finer size thread or decrease the number of plies that would normally be used on the canvas size.
