Counted Cross Stitch
Counted cross stitch designs are usually worked on an evenweave fabric like Aida cloth or linen. To create the design, the stitcher uses embroidery floss to place X's that correspond to the appropriate color symbol on the design chart. The different symbols on the chart represent different colors of floss used in the design.

Stamped Cross Stitch
Stamped designs are worked onto printed fabric using a combination of cross stitch and backstitch. Simply follow the stamped marks with the color of floss indicated.
Needlepoint, sometimes called canvas work, uses threads or yarns on a mesh canvas. Stitched in a continental stitch (also known as a tent stitch or half cross stitch), most designs feature an easy-to-stitch fully printed canvas. Some designs are counted from a chart.
Crewel uses a variety of stitches done in yarns and threads. Traditional design is where all of the design is stitched, or choose newer designs where the fabric is fully printed and your stitching embellishes the design.
