Framed along the right side by a leafy vine with crescent moons and a bird, the text reads: "Bide within the law you must, in perfect love and perfect trust. Live you must, and let to live, fairly take and fairly give. Tread the circle thrice about, to keep unwelcome spirits out. To bind the spell well every time, let the spell be said in rhyme. Light of eye and soft of touch, speak you little, listen much. Heed the flower, bush, and tree, by the lady, blessed you'll be. Merry meet and merry part, bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the threefold law you should, 3 times bad and 3 times good. These 8 words the rede fulfill, an ye harm none, do as ye will." These words are drawn from the Wiccan Rede (or Witches' Rede)
This pagan/wiccan cross stitch pattern measures 108 stitches wide by 160 stitches tall, and requires only a single color of floss. 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.
