Pattern Description:

In honour of our Home and Native Land - that would be the True North (strong and free!)... or Canada to those of you not in the know - we've designed this pattern featuring the iconic McKenzie brothers Bob and Doug - the original hosers. (If you don't know who they are, you're just not watching enough Canadian television circa the 1980s).

So grab your tuque, your doughnuts, your two-four of stubbies and your needle and take off to the Great White North - you hoser!

This cross-stitch pattern comes with a full colour chart with floss legends in DMC, JP Coats, and Anchor, although of course all colours can be replaced as per the stitcher's preference.

This pattern is simple and suitable for beginners. We've included our best stitching tips for both beginners and more experienced stitchers and if you're completely new to the craft there's a good how-to video courtesy of Yarn Tree at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr_LfGr1v0E
