Counted cross stitching is an embroidery method which transfers a design from a printed graph onto evenweave fabric. The stitcher uses a special type of thread called embroidery floss to place X's on the fabric corresponding to symbols on the chart. Each symbol on the chart represents one X on the fabric. Depending on the chart used, the different colors of floss will be represented either by different symbols or by colors. Cross stitching is easy to learn and requires only a few supplies.
