The biggest nuisance to any cross stitcher, new or experienced, is the dreaded knotted floss.

Virtually everyone who has ever completed a project has experienced a tangle which has turned into a knot. It's always worth taking time to untangle the mistake, particularly if you're framing a project, otherwise it will be riddled with visible lumps.

Cross stitch is typically done using a round-end tapestry needle. The size you use depends on your fabric. If you are stitching a kit, use the needle that came with it. If not, see this article on choosing a needle for cross stitch.

Thread your needle just as you would a needle for hand sewing. Don’t make a knot in the tail end. You will stitch over the tail as you work to secure it without needing a knot. As a general rule, you want to avoid using knots when cross stitching because they can leave lumps in the final piece.
