DMC Crossword

from Amie Foster Designs
(10) Name: 'Embroidery : DMC Crossword
DMC Crossword DMC Crossword
DMC Crossword

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Back Stitch

Pattern Description:

I love my threads all in my floss box and the rainbom they make, and I have always been interested in knowing what the actual names are rather than their simple colour codes. Plus, I love crosswords!!

Feel free to add your own clues and words.. Mix it up a bit!

Where the letters cross over in the puzzle, I have written the letter with single stitches in the opposing colours.

I would actually recommend using a single strand of each colour held
together to create the crossover, rather than individual stitches. I simply
designed it this way to deomnstrate using both colours in the letter.
