Cross stitch is a form of counted thread embroidery that has been around for ages, and it is widely regarded as one of the easiest forms of hand embroidery, making it an accessible hobby for virtually everyone.

One of the biggest online communities advocating for this craft is the aptly titled subreddit r/CrossStitch. As you may have seen in our earlier article on this place, its 404K members are constantly sharing pictures of their proud works, and they serve as perfect examples of cross-stitching's limitless potential.

However, since the subreddit remains really active, we thought it was about time we made an update on it. Continue scrolling to check out its latest gems.

That's awfly perty for a picture of Satan. I mean, you specified it was the Eden serpent,... (And he has no legs, so you know it's after he was curse. Because, you know, his plan would have been less likely to work if he was ugly BEFORE offering the apple. )

I really wanted to get this pattern, but just the pattern and not the kit. The company wouldn't sell it as just the pattern unfortunately. I love the design but want to change the colours in it.
