Digital Cross-Stitch Patterns: Overview and Advantages
Digital cross-stitch patterns are the product of the Internet age and the result of the widespread use of computers, smartphones, and other gadgets. Obviously, purchasing a complete cross-stitch kit saves you the trouble of worrying about getting a canvas of the required count, specific floss and needle because all the necessary components, as well as detailed instructions, are normally included into a kit. However, a stash of kits for your potential cross-stitch projects may take up an increasing amount of space and the range of designs available as kits may not be wide enough to meet your taste.
With the impressive variety of designs represented as downloadable PDF patterns, any stitcher is sure to find something to their liking, something that would inspire them to start a cross-stitch project as soon as possible or master cross-stitching if they’ve never done that before. You can browse our extensive collection of digital patterns and see for yourself: there, you’ll find not only traditional landscapes, stilllives or portraits of people and animals, but also abstract designs, samplers, artworks using unconventional color combinations and covering diverse subjects from travel, architecture and music to fantasy, fairytales and anime.
Another advantage of digital patterns is the fact that they often feature unique artworks by independent designers and can never be found as kits. This makes you stand out among fellow stitchers as basing your project on a digital pattern increases the chances of your work being one-of-a-kind and rarely repeated by others.
Moreover, the need to pick the materials for such a project by yourself is not necessarily a daunting challenge – hunting for the best canvas and floss in craft shops spices up your routine a little bit. Besides, you have the freedom of experimenting with the fabric type and color, which definitely unleashes your creativity. By the way, take a look at our lovely selection of designer canvases by MP Studia – what if you find the one that perfectly meets the vibe of your planned cross-stitch project?
We have a separate section in our store dedicated to free cross-stitch charts. They deal with various themes, including holidays, e.g., Christmas, Easter, St. Valentine’s Day, Halloween or Birthday. Some of the designs can be stitched on plastic canvas and then used as magnets, interior décor items or Christmas tree ornaments.
To get a download link for a selected free pattern, you should add it to your cart and specify your email and address at checkout – we won’t ask for your payment info.
Selected charts kindly provided by these manufacturers can be found in our Free Cross Stitch Patterns section.
