Cross stitch is a fairly flexible embroidery style. There are not a lot of hard and fast rules. It is imperative, however, that all stitches face the same direction unless otherwise specified in the instructions for the project. Choose a direction for the first leg of the cross stitch and stick with it.

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.
