This listing is to purchase the Snowflakes and Stars Advent Calendar Stitchalong! You will receive a new section of the pattern by email every day through the traditional advent calendar period, from 1st to 24th December - a daily advent treat in your inbox! You can then take time out during the run up to Christmas to relax and stitch this beautiful seasonal piece.

The theme is snowflakes and stars, and you can see the first snowflake in the listing photos. The pattern is predominantly snowflakes, with some stars and other elements. The snowflakes all use both full cross stitches and backstitch (with a little 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.

When you purchase the stitchalong, you will receive by instant download an introductory PDF booklet giving comprehensive information on the design, and the patterns released so far. The introductory booklet includes the thread colours and suggestions on changing thread colours if you wish to do so, and for 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.

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: www.facebook.com/FinnStitchersFactory

On each section release date you will receive two pattern booklets, one with colour patterns and one with black & white patterns. The pattern booklets include split page and single page patterns, and an enlarged pattern of that day's section.

Skill level: Suitable for those with a little experience of cross stitch.

Patterns are for personal use only.
