Pattern Description:

Dragonfly I

A Celtic Knotwork dragonfly for counted cross stitch or needlepoint. Includes patterns for alternate Tail, slightly longer and more tapered than the one in the display diagram, and a mini tutorial for shaded cross stitch.

The stitched area of Dragonfly I is 241 stitches wide by 148 stitches high, including antennae. Using the Alternate Tail pattern will give 157 stitches high.

Stitches needed if working in Counted Cross Stitch: regular cross stitch; backstitch or double-running stitch for outlines and antennae.

The pattern prints on 4 sheets of 8-1/2x11" (or size A4) paper; trim or fold the Wing and Tail pages and tape or paste to the Body page on the indicated lines. Patterns are hand-drafted and transferred to a computer program for neatness.

The designs are shown both with and without a pale-gray background grid to indicate each individual stitch, and I include marked, color-cued basting lines for aid in counting stitches.

SAMPLE PATTERN: The second picture is a free sample pattern. If you'd like to see how my format works for you before you purchase anything, right-click and print or save it to your computer.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 241 x 148 or 157 stitches

You Will Also Need:

  • Hoop or frame; needle, scissors, basting thread
