The full cross stitch is where each square on the chart represents a stitch in the form of a cross. The stitch can be made of a single thread colour or it can be a combination of two or 3 colours by blending strands from different colours. In the case of blended colours, the screen display shows the average colour.
The same tool is used to add stitches in Tapestry, knitting and beadwork - the only difference being the display mode used and the manufacturers colour range chosen. In this way, a design can be switched from cross stitch, tapestry, beadwork etc without redrawing.
