Do I need a crossover cable to connect two switches?

No, a cross cable is not required to connect two switches, with qualifications. Most (probably all) of the modern switches have an automatic detection port(s) or a manual top link switch for a particular port. Otherwise, press the top link button and connect the cable to the highest number port on this switch.
