When you go down into hole #1/48 be prepared to slide the rest of the stitches under all of the threads on the diagonal side. Look at the colors of this chart. The last side you will be sliding your stiches under other threads. There will be two threads in each hole when you finish. Rotate canvas or chart to stitch the next side. And use this chart.
