Cross stitch book is a craft book that helps you in making beautiful
decorative pieces along with fun all the way. There are some guidelines
that you need to follow for cross stitching which is given in a cross
stitch book.

<b> Things you require for cross stitching</b>
A graph that you wish to draw, even fabric for cross stitching, a
tapestry needle of 24 or 26, embroidery thread or floss, embroidery hoop
and scissors.

<b> Steps for cross stitching </b>
<b> 1.</b> You need to separate the cotton strands which are usually in
six strands in correct number for stitching. There will be a color key
that will show the cotton color you have to use for each symbol in the
chart. You should start the cross stitch design from the middle in such a
way that the stitching you made fits in the fabric without going off from
one side. You can find it easily by folding the fabric in four and thus
you will find the center but remember that this point coincides with the
center of the chart that is normally marked with arrows from top, bottom
and sides.

<b> 2. </b> Begin stitching by threading your needle and then bring it up
to your fabric but leave a short end of cotton in the back and work over
this with your first few stitches to secure it. After making enough
stitches in place you can start a new color by running it through back of
existing stitches. Finish the color by running the cotton under the
stitches at the back so that it is secured.
<b> 3. </b> You can make single cross stitch, row of cross stitches,
half cross stitch, back stitch, part stitches which really looks great
when you have finished.
