St John's Cross or Spider?

I recently removed my failed attempt of a closed wrap because my spacing was off. I want to try either a St John's cross or a Spider wrap this time around. I recently got the Decorative Wraps book so I SHOULD be able to do either. I have 4 different shades of blue I was going to use for the wrap in an attempt to have the colors fade as well. What are the opinions of these wraps? Is one easier/difficult to do?

Ken - have you mastered the basic cross wraps like diamond and chevron?

I believe I have, yes. I have done several cross wraps and chevrons. My last wrap was a reverse chevron(which I didn't know I did until I got the book) :)

Those wraps not hard. Just keep good track of the plus one on the pass you are on to make sure all passes get the same treatment

I plan on creating a spreadsheet of my passes when Im ready to do the wrap. This way I can check off each one as I move along. The chevrons I have done are all same number of passes, just with different threads. Placed an order with Mudhole for some essential items for the wrap so Ill start once I receive the order.
