Threads and colours

This pattern shows 11 colours:

  • 8 references of DMC stranded cotton
  • 3 references of Atalie threads (counterpart in DMC available on the chart)

ATALIe threads are shaded hand-dyed cotton (or silk) threads by French designer ATALIe; their subtle shading gives a special outcome to your stitching. We have prepared a specific mini-pack of ATALIe threads to match this pattern. See below the "related products" section to get more details.

The model on the picture has been stitched on a 40 count linen fabric (colour "off-white") using one strand of cotton over two threads of fabric for the main design and one strand of cotton over one thread of fabric for the small design (in order to mount it as a pinkeep).

Recommended Fabric: linen or evenweave fabric, stitch count of your choice, colour "off-white" or "ecru", 45x40 cm (18 x 16 in).

This product is a cross-stitch chart + instructions translated in English.
