Week 37 of the #YearOfStitch : Plaited Double Cross Stitch

I smile every time I say “double cross” stitch. 

This stitch really requires you to follow the stitching pattern in order to keep it visually consistent if you are using it as a filler. It builds upon itself into a nice weave. 

This stitch is 7 down and 7 across

The order you go in is super important so follow along exactly

Now I thought I would glam it up a bit so I started with just some upright cross stitches…

then I added some filler lines…

whatever feels right to you!

Happy Stitching
