Stitch of the Week - Long-Armed Cross Stitch

By July 2, 2012

Follow me on:

The Long-Armed Cross Stitch, sometimes referred to as an elongated cross stitch, can be used in bands and rows, or two outline or frame a section of a design in counted thread embroidery projects. The stitch is worked nearly identically to a standard cross stitch, with the exception that the second leg of the stitch is elongated.

When worked in rows, the stitches cross each other and resemble a braided or plaited band.
