This pattern was stitched with 1 thread over 2, even though I charted it for 2 strands over 2, on 36 count. You can choose whichever you like, and I’ve given approx. finished sizes based on 4 counts of fabric. Please read all directions carefully. The colors and symbols are clear and easy to follow and you can just pick your favorites- linen and threads and just have some fun.
Basic cross stitch x’s are used throughout this entire piece, as well as some back stitching, as noted on the chart. This was completely charted in DMC- and all colors picked to stitch in DMC. I’ve picked complimenting colors that will lend to a “painterly look” by giving shadows and highlights throughout the piece, but by all means- this is all yours and you, so have some fun with colors!!!
Please note!!! I don’t wish for anyone to “adapt” this cross stitch pattern into any other pattern on their own, as it is my design and I will be releasing future patterns using this, including a punch needle design and possible a hooked rug pattern. However- if you wish to stitch this using Lori Brechlin’s ( Notforgotten Farm ) way of doing Un-Counted cross stitch- you definitely may. If you’ve any questions regarding this- please do let me know…. Or you can visit her group https://www.facebook.com/groups/378705032792887/
and find out more. It’s not a Freebie group- but a group to learn and share a new way of stitching freely.
Last thing, before you get stitching is do let me know if you need anything!!!!
Thanks So Much & Happy Stitching!!!
