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.

Good lighting makes or breaks a cross stitch project. Proper lighting prevents floss color confusion. Adequate lighting prevents improper stitch placement. It also makes the chart much easier to read. Light sources do not have to be expensive.
