Skill Level: Beginner, Easy

See START on image for this section of the cross.

Row 2 - 30: CH 3, turn, 1 DC in ea of the next 3 DC, CH 2, 1 DC in ea of the next 4 DC.
See ATTACH on image for this section of the cross. You will attach the arm segments opposite each other. You will be working in the sides of the chains and double crochet on the long segment of the cross.
Attach Yarn, Chain 3
Row 1: Do 3 DC evenly across the side of the previously worked double crochet, CH 2, skip 1 double crochet. Work 4 Double crochet evenly across the side of the next DC.
Row 2 - 5: CH 3, turn, 1 DC in ea of the next 3 DC, CH 2, 1 DC in ea of the next 4 DC.
Edging: See EDGING on image for this section of the cross.
You can attach the thread anywhere. CH 1, SC in the side and top of the previous sideways stitch. CH 6, SC in the top of the next previous stitch. Refer to diagram for clarification.
The inside corners of the cross, where the segments meet, will have 3 SC. There is not enough room to do a chain 6.
The outside corners of the cross will have a SC, CH 6, SC in the same corner space, for an increase.
Ribbon: I have added some ribbon to the cross on the right by weaving it through the open spaces at the center of the cross. The ribbon loops are made with a knot close to the edge of the cross.
