Free Cross Stitch Alphabet 06
"It's a Fine Line"

Cross Stitch Alphabet 06 responds to the need for simple line letters.

In the Alphabet 06 design

The free cross stitch Alphabet 06 is stitched on 18-count Aida over two threads. I used DMC floss:

  • 2 strands for backstitches
  • 2 strands for French knots


  • Line letters, standard/straight

Characters Included:

  • Upper Case Letters
  • Lower Case Letters
  • Numbers
  • Punctuation


  • The upper case letters are 4 stitches high.
  • The lower case letters without ascenders or descenders (ex: a, c, o) are 2 stitches high.
  • The lower case letters with only ascenders (ex: b, d, h) or only descenders (ex: g, p, y) are 4 stitches high.
  • The lower case "j", with a descender and a dot above, is 5 1/2 stitches high.


These letters have varying widths.

Stitch Complexity

  • Backstitches
  • French knots

Change the floss color to reflect your tastes and to coordinate with the rest of your project. Use the same number of strands that you are using throughout the rest of your cross stitch pattern.
