Special stitches: This is mainly a cross-stitch design with quite a lot of embroidery: Rhodes stitch, daisy stitch, spider web stitch, eyelet stitch, Smyrna cross-stitch, French knots, straight stitch, feather stitch and tambour stitch. There are clear diagrams and instructions on the chart and you can choose to replace these stitches by regular cross-stitches but the result won't be the same.
