You don’t need any special skills or tools either – just some fabric, embroidery floss, scissors and a needle. Now that we know what cross stitch is let’s take a look at how it works.

Cross stitching is done by making stitches over the lines on graph paper called a pattern or chart. The stitched piece will end up being an image of the design in mirror-image as it appears on the chart (see picture). It may help if you imagine turning your chart upside down when deciding which direction to move between points since each square represents one stitch regardless of whether it’s above or below the horizontal line.

How to read the cross stitch chart:

For example, if working with even-weave fabric such as Aida cloth where there are two threads per inch (2), each square would represent 1/2 inch (1/2″). So basically every time you complete one box across and down on your chart this will equal 1 inch (1″) finished size on your project after blocking and finishing steps have been completed. This means that larger charts equate into smaller finished products while smaller charts result in larger finished products!
