Cross Stitch Instruction

Cross stitch is a form of counted thread embroidery that has been around for ages, and it is one of the easiest forms of hand embroidery to learn. Cross stitch is comprised of X-shaped stitches done on fabric with an even and open weave like Aida or linen. Designs can be traditional or modern or anywhere in between.
Cross stitch projects are often sold as kits, but you can also purchase fabric, thread and basic supplies to come up with your own project.
Either way, follow these steps to learn the basics of cross stitch.
