As you stitch cross stitches, the floss tends to twist and eventually knot. The simple solution is to frequently dangle the needle and floss allowing it to untwist. Once you get into a routine, you will do this without thinking. Until you do, consciously take this step every few stitches.

Most designs supposed to be done using two strands of embroidery floss. But the floss is usually sold in six strand packaging.
So before threading your needle, you should separate all the 6 strands.
To do it just cut somewhat about 15”-18” (35 - 45 cm) of the thread. Hold it near the top with one hand allowing the bottom to untwist. Now pull each ply upward with the other hand. Carefully - one at a time.
Combine the necessary number of strands (typically two) and save the remaining for the next usage.
