Last week we were in Edinburgh, Scotland for a few days, so I did not have time to explore last week’s stitch. This week’s woven cross stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB was one of the stitches I missed during the previous challenge. I am happy this gives me the opportunity to explore this stitch.

1.I want to try this stitch as line and isolated stitch, starting with the basic stitch, moved on to alternating the small and big ones, worked the zigzag version and alternated the square and upright version.

2. the variations here are worked on individual woven cross stitches.
The weaving is more than two in the first three samples. The next sample is done in two colours, then followed by woven cross stitch worked- over a cross, as an ablong cross, with one diagonal short, with a tail, within a square, with four small woven cross around a medium woven cross and as rice stitch .

3. Woven cross stitch worked with two colours.

The basic cross is worked with one colour and the weaving cross is worked with another colour. In the second sample, the journey from left to right was done in one colour and the journey from right to left was done in another colour.
