Elongated Loop Cross Stitch


8-Loop cross stitch

Step 1: Sl 8 sts wyib, dropping the yarnovers. This creates 8 elongated loops on the RN.

Step 2:  Insert LN into the second 4 of these loops and pass them over the first 4 loops. 

Step 3:  Return all 8 loops to LN. Now the loops should appear crossed on the LN. 

Step 4:  Knit the sts in the new order. 

Rep from Step 1 for each group of 8 sts.


I have used this stitch in my Reed Shawl Pattern.
