When I saw this stitch in Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches I thought it would be a nice one.
Ha! I was wrong!
I felt it was very tedious after having made a few.
As the basic Cross Stitch is just wrapped you have to control the working thread all the time.
I know I much prefer any buttonholed stitch as the knot controls the thread.
Well these are my Wrapped (and Wonky) Crosses:

Teal Wool Tailoring Scribble Cloth
As you can see, the more crosses I wrapped the sloppier the work got. A sure sign of boredom and nonchalance!
I hope anyone who tried this stitch liked it better than I did!
