always remember the following points before starting with needle!
1) there are 2 parts. one is outline or skeleton second is the FILLING
2) OUTLINE always starts from the LEFTand goes toRIGHT .RUNS CLOKCWISE
3) FILLING always starts from left on the outline running ANTICLICKWISE.
4) keep counting ' UP... DOWN.. in mind at every intersection of the thread.
5) in outline count is up, down ,up(needle passes U,D,U)
6) in filling the count is down, up, down.( needle passes D,U,D)
