Pattern Description:

Cats - The Musical - Counted Cross Stitch Pattern (X-Stitch PDF)

This cross stitch pattern was personally and lovingly designed by me! This listing includes two patterns: a small one and a large one. They are both very simple to stitch, but the small one does include 1/4 and 3/4 stitches.

The pattern calls for the black and white colors to be regular matte floss, but you might consider substituting metallic 'light effects' colors E310-Ebony and E520-Pearlescent White instead. Just and idea for those who want a little more glitz and glamor.

Digital and "Instant Download" items are NOT eligible for returns, refunds, or exchanges due to the nature of digital media. Please read the item description carefully before purchasing one of my patterns.

Your downloaded pattern will include 2 versions of the same pattern. You will have a black and white version, as well as a color version. I've made the grid size for this pattern suitable for those who prefer 'large print,' so those who wear reading glasses should be able to follow the pattern. The files will be in PDF format. You probably already have an appropriate PDF reader program. But, if the file doesn't open, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free here: Mac users will view the file with Preview.
