Leviathan Stitch

Schematic drawing of the Leviathan stitch. Schematic drawing of the Leviathan stitch.

The Leviathan stitch is very similar to the double cross stitch. It is a composite stitch that combines a 'normal' cross stitch, worked first, with an upright cross stitch worked on top, creating a neat square. The stitch is also known as the Smyrna cross stitch or the railway stitch.
