Then, you come back the other direction, from right to left, “crossing” the stitches that need it (and skipping the ones that don’t), sewing each from the bottom right corner to the top left corner. It’s genuinely harder to type out than it is to do, and it’s a craft anyone can learn in just a few minutes!
