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.

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.)
