Cinderella's Castle (Disney) - Counted Cross Stitch Pattern (X-Stitch PDF)
This cross stitch pattern was personally and lovingly designed by me! I hope you like this side view of Disney's iconic castle including the river, plants, and clouds that surround it. I thought this image was softer and more romantic than the typical straight-on view.
With all of my cross-stitch patterns, I try to group stitches of a particular color together so it's easier to stitch. I know that it's frustrating to start a new thread and only do one speck of that color before weaving back in. As much as possible, I've tried to avoid this, but there are some places where it's inevitable. For example, most of the windows of Cinderella's Castle are single stitches of black separated from any other grouping of black thread. I am giving this pattern a difficulty rating of '4 stars' for three reasons: 1) This pattern has single-stitch islands of stitches more often than I usually allow in my patterns, 2) Most of the pattern areas involve shaded colors rather than defined blocks of color, and 3) this pattern has more colors than I usually permit (41 colors). This isn't a pattern you'll just breeze through.

Your downloaded pattern will include 4 versions of the same pattern. You will have a black and white version, as well as a color version. You will also have a 'large print' option for both. The large print format will use up more printer paper and ink, so it is only recommended for people with poor eyesight or who typically wear reading glasses. 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: http://get.adobe.com/reader/ Mac users will view the file with Preview.
