7 Free Cross Stitch Patterns To Download

Today I’m sharing a round-up of some fun, free cross stitch patterns to download and stitch. All of these are high-quality patterns that are beginner-friendly.

If you’re just starting out, these patterns are a perfect way to learn! You can also take a look at this introduction to cross stitch for some tips to get you going.

I love cross stitch because it is very meditative. Unlike surface embroidery, most patterns only require one or two different stitches, and it’s a perfect way to unwind from a long day. I enjoy stitching while I’m watching tv or hanging out on the couch.

Several of these sites that are linked below offer a large selection of patterns, so definitely check out all of what they have to offer!
