CROSS STITCH
Following instructions and chart, add cross stitch design to each Strip.
Each grey square on the chart represents one cross stitch. Each cross stitch is worked over one sc. To position design on Strip, match marked sc on Strip to the cross stitch marked with an X on chart. Using yarn needle and long strand of Variegated, weave end under several stitches on wrong side of Strip to secure (do not tie knot). With right side facing and Strip turned so marked sc is at top, work cross stitch as follows: bring needle up at 1, down at 2 (half cross made), up at 3, and down at 4 (cross stitch completed, Fig. 1). Beginning with marked sc, follow chart to add cross stitch design, repeat marked area 6 times more; then work remainder of design as shown on chart (for a total of eight fleur-de-lis motifs), leaving three unworked rows at bottom of Strip. All cross stitches should cross in the same direction. When working stitches in a horizontal row, work half crosses from left to right and then back again to complete stitches in row; when working stitches vertically, complete each stitch individually before moving down to the next one. Finish off by weaving end under several stitches on wrong side of Strip; cut yarn end close to work.
