This band was a bit confusing because the directions called it a long Arm Cross but the diagram looks more like an upside down Montenegrin stitch. I love the Long Arm Cross stitch more than the Montenegrin so I was torn which to do it as. Following the diagram it crosses over several stitches a couple times and looked bulky to me but I think this was so the back came out ok. This was not an important point to me since I was doing the non-reversible anyway. I ended up doing a regular long arm cross and liked it the best.
