We would argue that crossing stitches in different directions isn't a complete sin, but if you like things looking flawless and professional, make sure you go in the same direction. The top leg can go anywhere, but the corresponding stitches all need to follow suit for a perfect finish.

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.
