Pattern Description:

Rorschach Ink Blot 6 - Counted Cross Stitch Pattern (X-Stitch PDF)

This cross stitch pattern was personally and lovingly designed by me! Rorschach ink blots are typically black and white, but you could use whatever color you like. It might be fun choose a color that is bright or neon or metallic, or one that coordinates with the room. Now when friends come over and see your needlework art, they can stand back and tell you what they see!

This piece is one of a ten-part series of Rorschach ink blot cross-stitch patterns. My idea is that it might be fun to have several ink blots grouped together on the wall for a fun, abstract, modern look. All ten patterns are 168 stitches (12 inches) at their widest dimension. This means that if you complete multiple projects, they can all be framed in matching square frames. To see all ten patterns, visit my Craftsy shop page or type 'Rorschach in patterns' into the search box.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Remember to purchase enough fabric to allow at least a couple inches margin on the edges.
  • If you will be completing multiple projects in this series, you should assume a stitched area of 168 stitches square (12 inches square if you use 14-count fabric) so that all the projects will match in size.
  • For 16 stitches per inch fabric, the finished project will measure: 10.5 inches (26.7 cm) square
  • For 14 stitches per inch fabric, the finished project will measure: 12 inches (30.5 cm) square
  • For 12 stitches per inch fabric, the finished project will measure: 14 inches (35.6 cm) square
  • For 10 stitches per inch fabric, the finished project will measure: 16.8 inches (42.7 cm) square


  • DMC embroidery floss indicated on the pattern
  • Cross-stitch fabric (even-weave) OR Aida cloth of your choice
  • Cross-stitch needle
  • The embroidery floss length estimates given on the pattern assumes that you are making 14 stitches per inch. If your stitches are smaller, you'll need less floss; if your stitches are larger, you will need more floss.
