Polka-Dot Pig in Purple Periwinkle and Pumpkin - Counted Cross Stitch Pattern (X-Stitch PDF)
Thanks for visiting my store! This cross-stitch pattern was personally and lovingly designed by me!
This pattern uses only three 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.

* De-speckling (Confetti) and Minimization of Threads: When I am creating my cross-stitch patterns, I try to group stitches of a particular color together so it's easier to stitch. I know it's annoying to start a new thread just to stitch one speck and then weave back in. As much as possible, I've tried to avoid this. I also try to minimize the number of thread colors required, without sacrificing detail. (Beware of sellers who don't tell you ahead of time how many colors are required to complete a pattern!)
* This Listing Includes: A PDF computer file containing the pattern. The pattern will include a color image of the completed project, the pattern itself, and a legend which lists the colors and lengths of the DMC embroidery floss you will need to purchase.
* This Listing Does Not Include: 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. Nothing will be mailed. If you have trouble printing the PDF (extremely rare), I cannot troubleshoot your computer, printer, or software. Remember that most office stores offer inexpensive quality printing services in color as well as black and white.
