This blog post explains multiple ways how to start your cross stitch project. If you are new to cross stitch you might like to know the easiest way to start cross stitch for beginners. If you prefer a little challenge, read the section where we explain how to start cross stitch with a loop.
The best way to start your cross stitch project depends on the number of strands you use, how experienced you are and the contrast between your floss and fabric color. For beginners we recommend to start your cross stitch project with a waste knot, and then continue adding colours with a burried start. For intermediate cross stitchers we advise to start with a loop when stitching with an even number of strands.
How to start cross stitching without a knot or with a knot, that’s the question ;-).
