Week 34 of the #YearOfStitch: Laced Wheel Stitch

A darling little stitch created with a series of cross stitches (diagonal, vertical and horizontal) and then finished with a delightful weave. 

Start with a traditional cross stitch / Up and over 5

Two horizontal stitches

Two vertical

Now for the weaving! Bring it up from the back (and make sure it’s knotted)

You will work it over the horizontal and vertical base stitches and under the diagonal base stitches.

Then bring it down in the same spot you brought it up.
