Let’s talk about the traditional X Stitch and a slight modification that I like to use.
Traditional X Stitch is worked over two stitches crossing the second stitch either behind or in front of the first stitch made (I prefer behind). It produces a true X look as one stitch crosses over the other.
My version, Modified X Stitch, is worked over two stitches crossing the second stitch in front of the first stitch and encasing the first stitch within it – think of it as the second stitch hugging the first stitch!
To work the X Stitch in the round, start with your foundation stitches or rows, when you are ready to start the X Stitch, ch the required number of stitches to get to the height of the next row (ch3 for dc X Stitch, ch2 for hdc X Stitch, etc.) and follow the steps below.
