Where is the best place to start a cross stitch pattern?

Does it matter where you start cross stitch pattern?

Starting your stitch at the center is ideal for small designs or single-page patterns. Starting on the top left corner is the best method to choose when working on a pattern with multiple pages. It will be easier to see your progress as you finish each page consecutively.

How do you approach a cross stitch pattern?

Generally speaking our own preferred way to stitch is to do all the half stitches of one row of one section first, before coming back and completing the row of cross stitches. The reason for that is if you miscount, it is easier to unpick half stitches that whole stitches! Then come back to complete the cross stitches.
