PATTERN DETAILS

Blackwork or Backstitch designs work up so quickly, because only one color of embroidery floss is used, so there are no confusing chart symbols to keep track of, and a minimum of supplies are necessary to complete your project. These Celtic designs will impress your friends with your stitching skill. They look complex, but are so easy to stitch, as you only need to know the simple backstitch to complete each design. Work like a pro. Mark the center of your fabric, and work your design from the center out. This will make keeping track of your place on the chart much easier, and ensure that your design will always be perfectly centered on your fabric. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Simple backstitch (Blackwork) stitching on counted thread fabric (Aida cloth or evenweave fabric). SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished size of design is approximately 7x7".

Recommended with this pattern

  • 12x12" 14-count Aida or 28-count Evenweave fabric.
  • Embroidery needle, scissors, and hoop or stretcher frame.

When I was about five, my grandmother pinned the edge of a dishtowel to my skirt to hold it taut while I embroidered my initials. When I finished stitching, I discovered I'd stitched the towel to my skirt. Oh well. It did not deter me from having many adventures as I tried all types of needle crafts, but I always seem to return to my favorite, counted-thread embroidery. I hope you'll enjoy working my designs. Check back often for new counted thread patterns.
