Free Cross Stitch Pattern!

Create your own gorgeous cross stitch craft!
What's Cross Stitch?
Forming a picture with lots of little x-shaped stitches.
What you need:
  • Aida cloth
  • Embroidery cotton in red-brown, brown, black, cream and two kinds of green
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Needle

What to do:
  1. Pick a part of the cross stitch pattern you want to start with – perhaps a row of five crosses in one colour, and pull apart a bundle of embroidery cotton; you just want one thread. Cut it to the length you want, then double it back so you have a two-strand thread. Tie a knot in it at the end.
  2. Start from the back and poke up your needle, then push it back down again so you’ve made a tiny diagonal stitch, using the holes of the aida cloth as a guide. Repeat with a diagonal stitch the other way so you’ve got a little ‘x’.
  3. Sometimes it’s easier, faster and neater to create a row of four or five forward leaning stitches, then go back four or five times.
  4. Mark off your completed stitches on your printed-off pattern.
  5. When you’ve finished a colour or section, cut the thread and tie a neat knot at the back.
