Cutting Techniques

Once you have practised cutting crosses from the perforations made by the four needle tool and become quite good at it, the next challenge is cutting out the perforations of the other multi-needle tools like the Oct, eight needle tool. The difficulty is that with many multi-needle tools some of the needles are further apart than others, so that when you are cutting out you get a raggedy result. To get a neat result with the Oct tool -cut between the larger distance needles first.
