Now here's some advice we can all get behind: "Be the witch you were born to be, Magic, Happy, Wild, and Free." The words are sure to be appreciated by all manner of wiccans and pagans, as well as those who simply wake up feeling a bit witchy from time to time. The simple stars and moons are a perfect finishing touch.
This wonderfully witchy cross stitch pattern measures 122 stitches wide by 103 stitches high, and requires only a single color of floss. The chart calls for dark grey, but there's no reason you couldn't match it to your favorite color, or to your room's decor. This is an easy design to follow, even for inexperienced stitchers. It is printed on a single sheet of cardstock. The front has a color photo of the finished design. The back has a large easy to read graph in black and white symbols with stitch count and DMC symbol and color information.
This is a pattern for counted cross stitch. It is not a complete kit. You will need to supply your own fabric and floss. We are not able to offer digital downloads of our patterns at this time.
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.
