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.

You want the cross-stitch to be the most beautiful.
The keyword for it is consistency of your stitching. It doesn't matter if you start your embroidery with "///" or with "\\\", it is important how you continue it. Just be consistent throughout the needlework project.
