How do you continue a stitch with new thread?

What do you do when you run out of thread cross stitch?

Finishing off your thread

You will have to start by tying a secure knot on the backside of your pattern on the back of the fabric. Start by running your current threaded needle underneath the back of 3 or 4 stitches. Do this a couple of times to create an anchor. This will prevent your stitches from coming undone.

How many threads should I cross stitch with?

Cross stitch is generally worked using two strands of stranded cotton when working on 14-count and 16-count Aida. It is perfectly acceptable to mix the number of threads used within the same project. You might want to alter the texture of the finished piece by working in one, two and even three strands.
