Pattern Description:

Harlequin Hare - Counted Cross Stitch Pattern (X-Stitch PDF)

This cross stitch pattern was personally and lovingly designed by me! This pattern uses only six colors. Of course, you could substitute any colors you like. This is a good opportunity try one of the many variegated or metallic floss colors. The images above also show several background color fabric options.

This piece is part of a series of alphabet animal cross-stitch patterns. I have at least one animal for each letter of the alphabet. My idea is that folks might stitch multiple projects to mount on the wall or for the patches of a child's quilt. All of the patterns are 99-100 stitches (7 inches) at their widest dimension. This means that if you complete multiple projects, they can all be framed in matching square frames.

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 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: Mac users will view the file with Preview.

Instructions on how to cross-stitch, embroidery floss, cross-stitch fabric or Aida cloth, cross-stitch needles, or a physical print-out of the pattern. This is not a kit or finished piece.
