What you need to know for the criss cross stitch
- Row 1: 1 – 4 – 3
- Row 2: 1 – 3 – 2
Wrap peg 1 at the top, then peg 4 on the bottom, then peg 3 at the top. Then wrap every other along each row. Then turn around and go left, wrapping every peg you missed.
Wrap peg 1 at the top, then peg 3 on the bottom, then peg 2 at the top. Again, wrap every other peg to the right. Then turn around and go left, wrapping every peg you missed.
