How exactly are you supposed to fold your sticharion when you bring it up to the priest for blessing when you serve at the altar? My priest showed me the first time I served, but I have forgotten. I usually just fold it however I can, with the cross up.

I fold both of the arms in an X-shaped pattern over the front of the garment, then fold the garment from the bottom up several times. When I get to where the cross is, I flip the garment over, and the cross is on top.
