Elongated Loop Cross Stitch 8-Loop Cross Stitch (8-l cr st) WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS On the RS row, work the following step for a multiple of 8 sts: Insert RN into next st, yo 4 times and knit the st, drawing 4 yos through the st. On the WS row, work the following steps to create 8-l cr sts: 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. VIDEO TUTORIAL This video tutorial explains both RS and WS rows of the 8-l cr st. I have used this stitch in my Reed Shawl Pattern. We work this stitch over a multiple of 8 sts in this pattern.
