The difference between hand cross-stitch and machine embroidery
The main difference in method of making X-shaped stitches. Hand embroidery is created with only one single top thread. In case of machine embroidery the pattern is created by two threads - top thread and under thread. Cross-stitching by hand consists of two cross stitches.
There is no way to put cross stitches like that with top thread like in hand embroidery. That's why were developed other unique technique, whereby you have to use five stitches instead of two. Although, it seems more complicated, but embroidery machine is able to produce needed pattern faster with five threads, than the most experienced craft artist with two threads.

Stitch density depends on artist idea. Creating the pattern, you can increase cross density or add pattern density by decreasing the cross size.

  • single (two layers of thread) — you'll get quite pale result of the pattern. Although, if you want to use this option and have preferable beautiful pattern, you should make cross-stitches in small sizes;
  • double (four layers of thread) — the most conventional type of the machine cross-stitch embroidery, affordable by price and good appearance;
  • triple (six layers of thread) —the more expensive and absolutely perfect option;
  • quadruple (eight layers of thread) — this cross-stitch is not applied, because of its price and big quantity of fabric punctures. .
