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.


Waste Knot - Starting a new thread



Make a firm knot at the end of the thread. From the front of the canvas, make a long stitch (shown here dotted) from the direction in which you will subsequently work cross stitches. Make several stitches being sure to stitch OVER the leading thread on the back. After several stitches have been completed, cut off the knot on the front and trim the floss close to your work on the back.
