Free Counted Cross Stitch Patterns

Many of the patterns found here are free counted cross stitch patterns. Check out the cute border patterns that have been collected, as well as the many full designs. You will be amazed at how many designs are available here.

Counted cross stitch patterns are sure to delight!  This is one of the needle crafts that I became engrossed in.  Some of the most amazing creations I’ve made have come from counted cross stitch patterns.

Counted cross stitch patterns are different from stamped cross-stitch which is printed on the fabric.  With counted cross stitch, the embroiderer counts the stitches out from the center of the fabric with no printed design.

Many embroiderers believe counted cross stitch is so much easier than stamped.  I found it easy to fall right into.  The only tricky part is trying to stitch with one color at a time and having to count over large areas.

I find counted cross stitch patterns to be one of my favorite stitching crafts. For more information on cross stitching, be sure to check out our general cross stitch topic page.

Enjoy the vast array of counted cross stitch patterns found under this directory.  There is so much to explore!
