Double Cross Stitch

Schematic drawing of a double cross stitch. Schematic drawing of a double cross stitch.

The double cross stitch is a composite stitch that combines an upright cross stitch with a 'normal' cross stitch that is worked on top. It is also known as the double straight cross stitch, and is worked almost in the same way as the Leviathan stitch (whereby the upright cross stitch is worked on top of the 'normal' cross stitch).
