The Better Homes and Garden Cross Stitch Christmas collection is my favorite set of cross stitch books for several reasons. For starters, they publish a new book each year, so my library continues to grow and to be filled with fabulous cross stitch patterns just waiting for me to make.
But the biggest reason I prefer these books to others is simply because of their colored, easy to follow patterns.
Let me show you what I mean.
A Sample of a Pattern in the Books
Here is a sample of one of the patterns in the books. I wanted you to be able to see for yourself how easy these patterns are to read.
Having legible and easy to follow instructions can make a world of difference to how quickly we are able to stitch a project.
The patterns in these books are truly exceptional!

Now that I have shown you the fabulous detail of their patterns, allow me to show you “inside” a few of my favorite cross stitch pattern books. I am only showing four projects per book simply because they are way too many to feature here. However, I assure you, each book is filled with awesome cross stitch projects and will make a wonderful addition to your craft library.

Keep in mind as your are perusing these books, just because a design is featured on a particular item doesn’t mean they would only be appropriate for that project. You could easily take a design shown on the stockings and stitch them on hand towels or trivets.
