Sorry for the delay -- been out in the woods looking at spring flowers!

As I tell my students, there are no "dumb" or "stupid" questions -- it's the
*not* asking that's stupid or dumb -- ignorance is curable -- stupidity is 

Anyway, where the "arms" of the knotwork cross -- like if you made a 
fat X -- one leg of the X is overtop of the other leg -- do you stitch
both legs, or just stitch the top leg.

Does that help?  If not, I'll try and scan something so you can actually
see it.
