When it came to collecting some of the best cross stitch patterns for book lovers, the problem wasn’t finding them. The problem was winnowing down this list to a somewhat manageable number. There are so many great ones! (And you can find even more great bookish cross stitch patterns here, here, and here.) I’ve included some great patterns and bookmarks for general readers, and then keep on scrolling to find Harry Potter cross stitch patterns, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and Alice in Wonderland, too.
