Regardless of what winter holiday you celebrate, if any at all, snowflakes are a common decoration seen in the month of December. So this month’s pattern is just that…a snowflake!
How did everyone fare with November’s cross stitch project? I’m still working on mine; halfway done! It’s the largest project posted so far. I’m hoping mine will be done in time for Christmas…perhaps it will make a good gift for a fellow nerd? 🙂
Thanksgiving is over and winter is coming… The trees are mostly bare and the air is becoming COLD, not just chilly. Some areas have already been seeing snow! Since I live in Seattle by Puget Sound, snow is not a common occurrence in my city (to the glee of everyone but me).
This is a free pattern posted on the Country Living website.
Snowflake Cross Stitch Supplies
- 14 or 16 count blue Aida cloth, 8″ x 8″
- 6″ diameter embroidery hoop
- Tapestry needle, size 22-26
- Embroidery floss
- Access to printer or phone/computer to view patter
I want to note that this is a very flexible pattern as far as cloth and floss go. While the blue Aida cloth and white floss are very beautiful, you can just as easily use white Aida cloth with blue, green, red (or any color, really) floss. Or perhaps use black Aida cloth with white floss, to mimic a snowy night? Your choice!
Start at the center of the snowflake at 27w and 29h.
