Preventing Twists and Knots Separate the floss into individual strands and then recombine them. This is known as “stripping” the floss. There is less twisting and knotting, and the stitches lie flatter. To separate a thread from the others, hold onto the top end of the thread between your thumb and forefinger. Pull down on it with the other thumb and forefinger, taking all the other threads with you. It looks like a knot will form.
Everything comes out just fine. Run each separated strand of floss over a damp sponge just before using it. This makes the floss lie much smoother and flatter. Some fibers, such as silk, should not be dampened. If you know which direction you tend to twist the needle, give it a little bit of a twist the opposite direction after each stitch. Try threading the needle with the “right” end of the floss.

Quarter-stitches, half-stitches, and three-quarter stitches. A quarter stitch is half of one leg of a cross stitch. What is a Fractional Stitch? Every cross stitch is made of two diagonal legs: Either one of those legs—or both—can be cut in half so that one half is one color and the other half is another color. Half of one leg is a quarter stitch. A quarter leg plus a full leg is—you got it—a three-quarter stitch. A three-quarter stitch is one whole leg of a cross stitch plus one half.
Fractional stitches are things we see in cross stitch rather than needlepoint, since needlepoint is generally stitched over a single intersection of canvas threads. Fractional stitches can smooth a curve; they can add subtle, delicate details and complexity to a design. I love fractional stitches when stitching over two threads on linen or evenweave because there is a natural open-hole center for the quarter-stitches to go through.
I like fractional stitches slightly less when stitching on aida because I have to poke my blunt-tipped tapestry needle through the center block. Worst of all, it can be hard to hit the precise center, which drives this perfectionist batty.
