Cross Stitch Patterns


These cross stitch designs are available only as printed patterns. I will add new designs here so you may want to come back from time to time.

CS-1 Spring at Cragside

patterns with stitched model
Please note: Despite dozens of reviews, including by another set of eyes, I ran afoul of human error. I managed to miss a few cosmetic points prior to commercially printing this pattern. To my knowledge, there have been no errors introduced into the actual chart itself so these should not affect your stitching.


The Spring at Cragside pattern is printed over 4, overlapping A4 size pages. The entire chart appears on one side of the 4 pages. The other side of each page contains the charted design without backstitching and other decorative symbols so you can easily read the symbols that lie beneath them.


Separate from the pattern pages are:
  • a picture of the stitched design
  • stitching instructions (see my How to tab above)
  • a DMC colour key
  • a conversion table that approximately matches Anchor threads to the DMC colour key
Suitable for...

... those of you who already have some experience performing the stitches in this design.
