This listing is to purchase the Snowflakes and Stars cross stitch pattern. This was previously run as a stitchalong and is now available as a complete pattern.

The snowflakes all use both full cross stitches and backstitch (with some fractional backstitch). All the other elements use full cross stitches only. There are no fractional cross stitches or French knots in the piece. 7 thread colours are used in the design.

The stitched area of the finished piece is: 134 stitches wide x 134 stitches high 
On 14 count fabric this is approximately 9.6 x 9.6 inches or 24.3 x 24.3 cm
On 16 count fabric this is approximately 8.4 x 8.4 inches or 21.3 x 21.3 cm
On 18 count fabric this is approximately 7.4 x 7.4 inches or 18.9 x 18.9 cm

These dimensions do not include the border of fabric you will need to leave around the design. I recommend you leave a further 2-3 inches all the way round (which means that you need to add 4-6 inches to your size measurements) - or as much fabric as you need to mount it in the hoop size of your choice, if you want to mount it in a hoop.

The final piece is circular in shape and so can be mounted easily in a hoop. Alternatively, if you prefer to mount it in a frame, that would also look great - it doesn’t have to be in a hoop.

Suggested hoop sizes are:
For 14 count fabric: 11 inch hoop
For 16 count fabric: 10 inch hoop
For 18 count fabric: 9 inch hoop

The pattern was model stitched on 16 count hand dyed fabric from FinnStitcher’s Factory, entitled ‘Night Sky’. This beautiful fabric is available from Kaarina Anttila in Finland via her Facebook page:

You will receive two PDF pattern booklets, one with charts with colour blocks and symbols, and one with black and white symbols (with colour backstitch). Each booklet has a single page chart for screen use, and a split page chart for printing. The booklets also have information on possible changes to thread colours and incorporating beads. The pattern was designed to be stitched on dark fabric but you can easily change the thread colours to stitch it on pale fabric if you prefer. 

You will also receive comprehensive cross stitch instructions.
