"So Great" is a cross-stitch chart with instructions translated in English.
The text says in French "It is so sweet it is great" which is a play on words, "chou" meaning "sweet" and "chouette" meaning both "owl" and "great". It is shown in the picture worked as a miniature and mounted as a eyeglasses case.

Design area:

  • 7,5 x 6 cm (3 x 2½ in) on a 32 count fabric if stitched as a miniature

Threads and colours

This pattern shows 4 colours (DMC stranded cotton numbers on the chart).

The model on the picture has been stitched on a 32 count linen colour "light purple" (Zweigart Belfast colour n°558) as a miniature using one strand of cotton over one thread of fabric. But you can work it in full size using two strands of cotton over two threads of fabric / one block of Aida.

Recommended Fabric: of your choice regarding the type (linen / evenweave but preferably not Aida because of the smyrna cross-stitches) and the stitch count, colour "light pink" or "light purple" (to be checked with the stranded cotton at hand),  35x35 cm (14x14 in).

This product is a cross-stitch chart + instructions translated in English and costs £4.50
