cross stitch version 2

You will see that this one is easy too, with only 2 rows repeat. The first row is a little more difficult because involves a little more counting and might seem difficult working in foundation chain. But after completing row 1 everything become so clear.

For those of you who work more easy following a diagram, this is the one for this stitch.
