Eyes downcast, this splendid lady spirals gracefully away from the sight of the eclipse. The steps of her dance carry her between the stars and along the paths of planets, treading the narrow boundary between darkness and light. This cross stitch pattern was designed by Mari McDonald.
Dance of the Total Eclipse Cross Stitch Pattern has a stitch count of 146 stitches wide by 194 high. The front has a color photo of the finished design. The chart is graphed in black and white symbols. A table showing the DMC colors you'll need is included. This pattern calls for some backstitching and quarter stitches, and beads are used to accent the embroidery. Some specialty flosses are called for; The instructions are printed on 6 loose sheets, in a resealable cellophane envelope for protection.

How much fabric do I need?
To calculate the amount of fabric you will need for your project, divide the number of stitches by the stitch count of the fabric you wish to use. The higher the count of your fabric, the smaller your piece will be. Some examples appear below. Remember to leave several additional inches as a border on each side, to facilitate framing your project when it is finished.
