Counted Cross Stitch
Counted cross stitch is one of the most popular forms of needlework today. It is inexpensive and fairly easy to do, and the projects are very beautiful. The reason it is called counted cross stitch is because there is no pattern or design imprinted on the fabric. The special fabric is evenly woven in such a manner as to have rows and columns of perfect, little squares. One must transfer the pattern by matching the squares in the design to the squares in the fabric. This involves counting the squares to know where to stitch and change colors of floss. Many beautiful samplers are cross stitched. Counted cross stitching also produces attractive pictures, bookmarks, and other mementos.
