HOW TO MAKE A ONE & ONE HALF CROSS-STITCH
Starting with the longer stitch, come up with your needle from the back of the fabric at 1. Then go down with your needle from the front of the fabric at 2. (This makes your main stitch). Next, come up from the back of the fabric at 3, and go down at 4. (This makes the 2nd of the 3 stitches). Next, come up from the back of the fabric at 5, and then go down at 6 to finish.
