Elusive Encounter Cross Stitch Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • To be able to read and understand a counted cross stitch pattern the cross stitch it into its final picture

Pattern Description:

This lovely picture created from artwork of American artist Ruane Manning, the first picture shows you what it will look like as a cross stitch creation in a frame. The second shows the completed cross stitch and the third is the original picture.

This is a professional computer generated chart, printed on A4 sheets.

The chart is at nine stitches to an inch, so the symbols are not too small and easy to see.

The size is on 14 count Aida, 179 x 200 stitches and measures 12.79 x 14.29 inches or 32.48 x 36.29 cm.

Included with the chart is a symbol chart for DMC threads, that will give you as close a colour match as possible to the picture.

A printed picture on the front cover to give you as close a representation of the completed design.

Also included are the sheets for the thread organiser, which I recommend you print out on card to give it the strength to hold your threads.

As well as the pages to tell you how much thread is required to complete this design,

We hope this will help you to get started on your work.

Please note that this is a cross stitch chart and not a kit, so it does not include the material and threads.

The chart will be downloaded as a zip file which contains four PDF files, so once you have opened the files all you have to do then is start printing.

I am sure you will have many hours of pleasure stitching your own Ruane Manning cross stitch creation.
