Three Quarter Cross Stitch

The Three Quarter Cross stitch is used to give the impression of curves in cross stitch.


It is a fractional stitch similar to the Basic cross stitch, but one of the down stitches is pushed through, where the centre of the cross would be.


The centre puncture made, is stitched around the first diagonal and so pulls the thread slightly to the side.


The sideways pulling of the first diagonal is what gives the impression of a curved stitch.


This stitch is best attempted with a sharp needle as the needle is required to puncture the material instead of passing through the holes of the Aida.


If this stitch is used in large numbers in a design, it may be a good idea to use evenweave material instead of Aida. Three Quarter Cross stitch

I saw your video on Youtube.com and I love all the colorful photos. I was wondering about the crochet pieces. Where did you get the patterns. do you have any photos of them? I'd like to get a closer look. there was an all pink one, also a very colorful rainbow effect piece, and then near the end there were several all together and they resembled tatting. Please email me at zengirl41@yahoo.com Thanks! Your work is fabulous and so full of color! Beth
