Winter Cross Stitch Patterns

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

A beginner cross stitch patterns for children to make for winter!  The pattern (with words) works well as a bookmark on 11 or 14 count aida cloth (though those counts are a bit harder for the kids to use as the stitches are smaller).  Without words it gives a square result that makes a nice picture on plastic canvas or 6 count aida (terrific for beginners!).

The words on these projects require backstitching.  If you're just starting to learn cross stitch, you can skip the words.

To learn more about cross stitching, check out our "How to Cross Stitch" directions.

When I do these projects with the girls, I encourage them fill in the white backgrounds with white cross stitch instead of leaving it unstitched.  The long rows of single colored stitches are terrific practice.  But it's completely up to you!  It does make the project take a lot longer.
