Long-Armed Cross Stitch

The long-armed cross stitch is a canvas embroidery stitch, where one arm of the cross is much longer than the other. On the reverse side of the ground material the stitches form a series of short lines set at a right angle to the direction of the cross stitches on the obverse. The same stitch is sometimes called a long-legged cross stitch, twist stitch or plaited Slav stitch.
