Basketweave Bat in Burgundy Burnt-Orange and Black - 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. 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. (c) 2014. All of my patterns are copyrighted. You may stitch them yourself and give the finished products as a gift, but please do not share, distribute, or re-sell the pattern. DETAILS: * Difficulty Level: Easy. Appropriate for someone's second or third project. * Back-stitch?: No. * Half Stitches or Other Specialty Stitches?: No. * Number of DMC Colors: 3 * Total Number of DMC Skeins Needed: 3 * Pattern pages should be printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper. * Included Files: color pattern, b&w pattern, color large-print pattern, b&w large-print pattern. (Large print patterns will use up more printer paper and ink, so they are only recommended for people with poor eyesight or who typically wear reading glasses.) * 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. THANKS: Thank you very much for your interest in my work.

BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cross-Stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS This pattern can be used with any even-weave / Aida fabric. 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 100 stitches square (7 inches square if you use 14-count fabric) so that all the projects will match in size. If you are completing only this project, follow these guidelines: Pattern Dimensions: 99 stitches wide by 42 stitches tall For 16 stitches per inch fabric, the finished project measures: 6.2 inches (15.7 cm) wide by 2.6 inches (6.7 cm) tall For 14 stitches per inch fabric, the finished project measures: 7.1 inches (18 cm) wide by 3 inches (7.6 cm) tall For 12 stitches per inch fabric, the finished project measures: 8.3 inches (21 cm) wide by 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) tall
