The description of

Cross-stitch 1.0 APK

Cross-stitch is a form of sewing and a popular form of counted thread embroidery in which X-shaped stitches in a tiled, raster like pattern are used to form a picture. The stitcher counts the
threads on a piece of evenweave fabric (such as linen) in each direction so that the stitches are of uniform size and appearance. This form of cross-stitch is also called counted cross-stitch
in order to distinguish it from other forms of cross stitch. Sometimes cross stitch is done on designs printed on the fabric stamped cross stitch the stitcher simply stitches over the
printed pattern. Cross stitch is also executed on easily countable fabric called aida cloth but the threads are not actually counted.


Fabrics used in cross stitch include linen, aida, and mixed content fabrics called evenweave such as jobelan. All cross stitch fabrics are technically evenweave as the term refers to the fact
that the fabric is woven to make sure that there are the same number of threads in an inch both left to right and top to bottom vertically and horizontally. Fabrics are categorized by threads
per inch referred to as count, which can range from 11 to 40 count. Aida fabric has a lower count because it is made with two threads grouped together for ease of stitching. Cross stitch
projects are worked from a gridded pattern and can be used on any count fabric, the count of the fabric determines the size of the finished stitching if the stitchers counts and stitches over
2 threads. The finished stitching size is reduced by half if the stitcher counts and stitches over one fabric thread. These methods are commonly referred to as 2 over 2, embroidery threads
used to stitch over 2 fabric threads, and 1 over 1, embroidery thread used to stitch over 1 fabric thread. There are different methods of stitching a pattern, including the cross country
method where one colour is stitched at a time, or the parking method where one block of fabric is stitched at a time and the end of the thread is parked at the next point the same colour
occurs in the pattern.


Fold the fabric in four, press lightly and work a line of tacking stitches along the folds to mark the centre remove these when the stitching is finished. With a small project like a card or
mini kit, I just fold the fabric and finger press. Work a narrow hem around the fabric or overlock on the sewing machine to prevent fraying.
Check you have all the thread colours you need. Mount all the threads on a piece of card alongside their shade numbers. Thread your needle with the required number of strands and you are
ready to go!


A cross stitch has two parts and can be worked in one of two ways a complete stitch can be worked, or a number of half stitches may be stitched in one line and then completed on the return
journey. Your cross stitch may face either direction but the one essential rule is that all the top stitches should face the same direction to produce the neatest result.
All the fabrics in the Aida family are woven with the threads grouped into bundles to form a square pattern on the fabric, which in turn creates obvious holes.
