Step 1:

Using the marker on your pattern grid for guidance, begin by making the center stitches at the center fold of your fabric.
Always refer to the center of your fabric to enable you to correctly position your design.

Step 2:

Bring your threaded needle up from the reverse of the Aida 'one'; and then across and down, through the diagonally opposite hole; 'two'. This is known as a half stitch.
