What is Counted Cross Stitch?

Counted 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

How to do?

Step 1: Reading a cross stitch chart

A cross stitch chart tells you everything you need to know about where to stitch and what color to use. The grid on a cross stitch chart corresponds to the grid created by the weave of the fabric, and each colored square on the chart represents a cross stitch.

A combination of colors and symbols in the squares (or symbols only if the chart is black-and-white) tell you which color of floss to use. Use the chart legend to map the symbols to the floss colors.

1. Make sure your hands are clean before embroidering
2. Ironing is to move the iron back and forth to make the embroidered cloth smooth and not hurt the thread.
3. The color blocks in the picture do not represent the real color of thread. Please carefully identify the symbol or serial number corresponding to the color block, and select the wire number according to the serial number requirements.
4. In order to allow customers to sew patterns better, we provide electronic design drawings to help customers better understand the sewing layout
