  9. Start stitching from the back of the fabric, holding the loose thread until you have done a few rows of stitching which will keep the end in place.
  10. Work your stitches all the in same direction, the bottom of the cross should always be the same in every stitch.
  11. Work in either individual crosses or for longer areas of stitch work the bottom arm of the cross stitch in a row and then stitch back over the row to do the top arm of the cross.
  12. To finish, ensure the needle is on the back of the fabric. Thread it through the underside of a few stitches and then snip off the loose end.
