Stitch Diagrams

You have heard the names of a wide variety of embroidery stitches used in cross-stitch. Here you can learn from a description and a graphical display how to achieve these stitches.


Half Cross Stitch



The half cross stitch may slant in either direction. Bring the needle through at (1) and insert the needle diagonally upwards into the fabric at (2); exit at (3) to start the next half cross. Continue in this way across the row. On the second row, the needle is passed vertically upwards to complete the stitch as shown.
