Have you ever wondered what size cross stitch needle you need?
Unfortunately, there’s not an exact science to choosing, however, the generally accepted size chart is below:
|Aida Cloth Gauge||Needle Size|
|20 count||24 petite|
|22 count||26 petite|
|24 count||28 petite|
Do you prefer a smaller needle (higher number) than the above table suggests? (it can help you cross stitch faster). To do so, drop in needle size by one size only, anything more will slip in the Aida cloth.
