Frac­tional stitches

Cross Stitch Crazy - - Chart Request -

To make a quar­ter stitch, bring the nee­dle up at the cor­ner of a square and take it down through the cen­tre, half­way across the di­ag­o­nal, split­ting the aida block. To turn this into a three-quar­ter stitch, make a half cross stitch across the other di­ag­o­nal of the square. This cre­ates a half cross stitch across the quar­ter stitch. If you have to make two frac­tional stitches back-to-back in the same square, you’ll need to de­cide which is a quar­ter stitch and which is a three-quar­ter stitch. Usu­ally, the three­quar­ter stitch is made in the fore­ground colour of the de­sign.
