How to Make

  • To cast on – Insert it into the back of the fabric to make your first stitch. Hold an inch tail of the thread at the back of your fabric. As you make your first stitches, be sure to catch the thread at the back within it to secure it in place.
  • To cast off – When you need to use a new thread or if you’ve come to the end of your design, make the last stitch as you usually would,
    Run the needle through the back of the last few stitches.
  1. Start by cutting out a square 21 x 21 squares big.
  2. Thread your needle and starting on the corner square and cast on.
  3. First wrap the edge going into one square from the front, wrapping around the edge and back into the next square from the front again.
  4. Following the pattern (or one of your own) make a half stitch or a cross stitch in each coloured square changing colour as needed.
  5. Once you have completed your design and cast off.
