New Stitch Monday – Criss Cross Hungarian
One of our favorite stitches at the shop is the Criss Cross Hungarian. It is a very versatile stitch that can be used just about anywhere on your canvas as well as making a great background. There are several different thread options that you can use. On the dreidel shown below, I used a blue Neon Rays Plus for the main stitch and then added white Neon Rays for the cross stitch. You can use coordinating colored threads such as Splendor for the main stitch and Neon Rays, Entice or Kreinik for the cross stitch. If you are not looking to add any glitter choose your main colored thread and then add a lighter or darker colored thread for the cross stitch. Of course, you could use the same colored thread for the entire stitch. It’s always fun playing around with the threads till you get the look you want for your canvas.
Give it a try!
Happy Stitching – Stephanie
