Greek Cross (for Pulled Thread)
Pull this stitch tight as you work. Here is a diagram showing how it is represented on a chart and then how it is done. Begin in the center hole and complete each arm of the cross. Pay attention to where your needle comes up in the center so that you are crossing over the previous arm. I have tried to illustrate that using different colors for each arm. When you finish the fourth arm, bring your needle through the center hole so that you are below the 4th stitch. You make a stitch in the center that goes over the 4th and 1st stitch to pull all the stitches together.
