Yes, I know. Technically, this is not a full coverage stitch, as in "full" full coverage stitch. The spirit is full coverage, so I included it this month. I really like this stitch as it is a great horizontal alternative to a Cashmere stitch. It's simple yet there is still little snap to it.
I recommend adding the X's first (the black lines), followed by the aqua lines. (Here's a refresher on Continental, should you want it.) The stitched sample on Instagram is stitched with Floche (2-ply) on 13-mesh.
