This center was developed when I wondered if the crossed stitch could be used as a center.
Thread Used in Sample size 20 crochet thread.
Sample Diameter about 2.25 inches
Instructions for the Sample Pictured Above
Wind two netting needles, one with single thread and one with double thread (2 threads).
mesh stick: 5/8″ Using needle filled with double thread net 30 double thread loops in foundation loop, last one tied by hand. NOTE: Connecting thread is also double.
30 knots in round
mesh stick: 5/8″ Net 2 loops together (30 double loops).
To tie CK at the end of this round:
Cut double thread needle off, leaving a 2″ to 3″ long tail.
Lay the 2 strings from the connecting thread and the 2 strings from the double thread needle in front of you with the strings from the double thread needle on the left. Number the threads from left to right 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Tie 2 CK’s, each one making a single loop, by tying string 2 to string 4 and string 1 to string 3.
Then tie single thread needle to string 4. String 1 becomes the connecting thread.
Begin round 3 and net 1 knot in each loop for several loops, then tie strings 2 and 3 together by hand so the loop is the same length as those loops just formed in round 2. Cut strings 2 and 3 off with very short tails.
