When doing the cross stiches on garments the waste canvas is used.

Baste the waste canvas onto the right side of the regular fabric. Work the cross stitches through both layers of fabric. When all the stitching is done, the waste canvas is cut away around the design. Soak the design in water. This will disolve the starch that holds the threads of the waste canvas together. What is left of the waste canvas can then be pulled out from under the stitches, one thread at a time, with a pair of tweezers.

We would argue that crossing stitches in different directions isn't a complete sin, but if you like things looking flawless and professional, make sure you go in the same direction. The top leg can go anywhere, but the corresponding stitches all need to follow suit for a perfect finish.
