Elongated Loop Cross Stitch WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS 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. VIDEO TUTORIAL I have used this stitch in my Reed Shawl Pattern.
