Cross-stitch is a skill in The Sims 4: Cottage Living. Practicing this skill allows Sims to create multiple different cross-stitch pieces.

Description[]

Nothing says love and patience like a carefully stitched piece of art! Cross-stitch pieces are perfect for decorations, selling, or as a gift for the little critter hanging around your garden. Choose from three different size hoops and get stitching! Just beware of resting stitch face!

Your Sim can learn new patterns with each level up but maybe talking to a few folks in town will give them some inspiration. Some of the small critters might even give them something new to stitch, but only if you give them something nice in return!

Overview[]

This skill allows Sims to create multiple different cross-stitch pieces. Sims can cross stitch specific patterns, or if their skill level is high enough, they can use a photo to "Stitch from Reference..." which, similar to the "Paint from Reference..." interaction from the Painting skill, allows Sims to create a cross-stitch piece that depicts a photo taken by the player. If The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting Stuff is installed, sims with a high knitting skill will learn the cross-stitch skill faster.
