Not all cross stitch has to be cute puppies and kittens. Here's something delightfully different— a murder of crows perched on the bare branches of a windswept tree. The silent gravestones below give this piece just a hint of the macabre. What a great cross stitch pattern this would be to complete for Halloween!

Only four colors of floss are needed for this brooding and atmospheric cross stitch pattern. The design measures 160 stitches wide by 110 stitches high. It is printed on a single sheet of cardstock, and 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. You can stitch it on whatever evenweave fabric you prefer, of course, but this is a great excuse to try out a mottled grey hand-dyed fabric for the background. The instructions are printed on 4 loose sheets, in a resealable cellophane envelope for protection.

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.

    Quality pattern with clear instructions. This artist has several other patterns as well, but it is difficult to find them on sale. Very pleased with this purchase.
