Cross stitching lessons: information for beginners

Cross-stitch embroidery is a popular trend in modern needlework. Many people are engaged in creating unique drawings on the canvas.

  • Working with even rows;
  • Use of ordinary cotton fabric;
  • Working with odd-numbered rows;
  • Use of special fabric "Aida".

All this requires certain skills. Beginners should learn the basics of this work, in order to further fully engage in the creation of unique creations.

The canvas "Aida" allows you to execute any pattern, thanks to the presence of pronounced squares, greatly facilitating the creative process.

Especially popular is the canna Aida, it looks through clear squares, so that the embroidery process becomes more simple. The thread is passed through holes located at the corners. Correctly embroidered cross is only within one square. The needle is inserted in a vertical direction with respect to the web. The point should be turned up or down. The cross is formed in two diagonal stitches, which are executed in the same sequence. First, a semi-cross is formed from left to right, and then vice versa.

Work plan with an even number of threads:

  • Thread threaded into a needle;
  • The needle is inserted into the fabric from the front side at the cross point of the threads;
  • The yarn is pulled from the needle;
  • Then it again inserts the needle;
  • The bottom diagonal stitch is executed.

Schemes for working with an odd number of threads differ slightly from the above information.

The algorithm is as follows:

  • The stitch is executed from right to left;
  • The action is repeated at least three times;
  • The needle is inserted into the upper left hole of the last square;
  • Stitches are executed in the opposite direction.

Cross-stitch embroidery assumes that a person has the skills of reading diagrams. The standard pictures indicate the number of cells that make up the whole picture. Schemes can be represented by multi-colored squares characterizing a certain color. This is an open pattern of the first type. Often, it can be seen symbols in the form of symbols.

There are two types of drawings:

  • Colored, squares;
  • Black and white or symbolic.

On finished schemes of the first type, each square is characterized by a certain color. The shade is indicated in the legend next to the drawing itself and the thread numbers. This greatly simplifies the choice of colors. Color pattern is used in the case if you do not need to use threads of many shades for work. As a rule, colors can be distinguished by the naked eye.

Black and white or symbolic scheme, indicates the location of the stitch on the embroidered fabric. Line lines are distinguished by a greasy color, often they are located around the embroidery itself. The symbols next to the diagram indicate the number of shades of thread that you need to purchase for work.
