Counting on evenweave

I would like to stitch on evenweave, but find it difficult to count the stitches correctly...

Although stitching on evenweave is slightly different to working on aida, it is very easy once you get used to it. Try and think of each single cross stitch covering a nine hole square. If you look at our diagrams you will see how the needle needs to come up at the bottom left hand corner of the square and go down at the top right hand corner. To make the top arm of the cross stitch bring the needle back up at the bottom right hand corner and take it down again at the top left hand corner. You've now completed a whole cross stitch on evenweave. Once you get used to counting in this way, stitching on evenweave will open up a whole new range of stitching possibilities, and you'll wonder why you didn't try it earlier!
