Fabric for cross stitch are referenced with the number of stitches possible in an inch. 10- 14 are the best for beginners ; it will be very difficult for a starter to do crossstitch on fabric with 20 or more stitches per inch.

Once you have got a hang of the techniques of cross stitch you can use other fabric to do cross stitch designs like a woven fabric with an even weave . Even weave means the number of threads will be the same per inch horizontally as well as vertically, making perfect squares to do your cross stitch.You get cotton even weave fabric specifically suited for cross stitch in the stores.

To begin, work a narrow hem or overlock stitch around your fabric to prevent fraying of the edges. Fold the fabric in half, then half again, finger press lightly. Run a basting stitch along each fold line to mark the center of the fabric. (These will be removed when stitching is finished.)
