What size needle do I need for cross stitch?

You will need a blunt tapestry needle for cross stitch. Pick a size that matches the count of your fabric:
FABRIC SIZE = 8 and 11 count aida NEEDLE SIZE = 22
FABRIC SIZE = 14-count aida NEEDLE SIZE = 24
FABRIC SIZE = 16 and 18-count aida; 28,30 and 32-count evenweave over two; 22-count hardanger and finer NEEDLE SIZE = 28
