Yes the crosshatch method as I was shown it uses a whole sheet of paper with one grade printed left to right and another printed top to bottom.
But that takes no account of where the primary shadows are or where the primary highlights are so I found it practically worthless. You really want a set strips across your primary highlights and primary shadows. A cross hatch across each of those areas might be better, but how a print looks in the end is a combination of contrasts across the whole image which gives it its overall look so focussing on only one area of a print is not going to give you full feedback on how it will really look when fully printed.
