How to Read a Cross Stitch Pattern

Before you embark on any creative project, you need to have a plan. That's where counted cross stitch patterns come in. Following a cross stitch pattern requires more patience than skill. Like anything else, the more familiar you become with your pattern, the quicker your work will go. Here is a rundown of the parts of a cross stitch pattern:

  • Grid: Line numbers across the top and down the side of cross stitch charts help you keep track of where you are.
  • Blocks: Each block indicates a full cross stitch.
  • Back Stitches: These are depicted as lines.
  • French Knots: Look like dots in the blocks.
  • Legend: The reference box at the bottom of the pattern has a corresponding code for each color of floss so you know which color to stitch where.
  • Pattern Notes: General information about the pattern.
  • Copyright: Tells you how the pattern may be used/shared.

Make it super easy on yourself by using cross stitch kits. They contain the pattern, cloth and floss you need to get going on your next counted cross stitch pattern!
