How To Do Cross stitch #embroidery the Danish way: Cross stitch can be done in the traditional style where each stitch is completed, one stitch at a time. The Danish method is when you stitch a row of diagonal stitches along the one way and then the crosses are made on the way back.
This cross stitch #embroidery pattern is adapted from an 1826 Danish sampler pattern and was made as a gift for a "Shaun of the Dead" movie fan (Do you notice the zombies in the middle of the sampler?)
