Pattern Description:

"Rorschach's Journal. October 12th 1985:
Dog carcass in alley this morning,
tire tread on burst stomach.
This city is afraid of me.
I have seen it's true face..."

And so begins Watchmen, our favourite graphic novel of all time. Featuring Rorschach, Nite Owl, Ozymandias, Doctor Manhattan, Silk Spectre, and the Comedian, this stitch is the perfect project (or gift!) for the comic book fan in your life.

This cross-stitch pattern comes with a full colour chart with floss legends in DMC, JP Coats, and Anchor, although of course all colours can be replaced as per the stitcher's preference.

This pattern is simple and suitable for beginners. We've included our best stitching tips for both beginners and more experienced stitchers.
