Counted Thread Stitches

Marking Cross Stitch

A stitch that, at one time, was used for marking linens. When worked properly (and neatly) the stitch creates Cross Stitches on the front, and squares on the reverse side. It requires that some stitches must be covered twice.
Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches, p 65
