When to use rows

Is it better to complete each cross individually or to work them in rows?

You can use both methods to stitch a design. Some areas are more suited to one method. For example, if you are stitching a flower made up of several different colours dotted around, it's best to complete each cross stitch individually before moving on to the next one. But if you are working a solid block of colour, work a row of half crosses and add the top arm to each stitch as you work back across the fabric. This is known as the Danish method.
