Using crossed stitches to embellish your canvases, like this one from Pippin Designs, is a terrific way to add texture and perspective.

Last week, we explored some slanted stitches that you can use to embellish your needlepoint canvases. And guess what?! Now we’re gonna explore cross (or crossed) stitches. A crossed stitch is comprised of two – or more – straight stitches that cross over each other to form a new stitch. They come in lots of different shapes and forms, including the standard cross-stitch, the upright cross stitch, and the Smyrna cross, just to name a few. 🙂
