Stitched on linen, 8 threads per cm. The edge is 12 threads wide. Size: 21½ x 21½ cm.
The starting point for this runner was three small shapes cut in paper. Size is about 78 x 20 centimeters on linen (10 threads per centimeter). The thread is DMC nr. 210. I have used full and three-quarter cross stitches.
I had a lot of fun making this ”cupcake” runner. Size about 76 x 16 centimeters on linen (10 threads per centimeter). I have used a DMC thread. The pattern is stitched using cross- and back stitches.
“Angels 2010”, table runner.
Four pine twigs stitched onto linen (7 threads per centimetre), approx. 16 x 78 centimetre. The coarse canvas is stitched with two threads (DMC) or one thread (Dansk Blomstergarn). This makes the subject more airy. I stitched the table runner with black and silver.
The pattern is available as a PDF download.
My idea with this cross stitch pattern was to use a simple design. Also, the idea was to create a pattern that had a fixed width, but with a variable length. I have used orange hand-dyed-yarn from Stef Francis 08/01 MC. Other color changing yarn can be used, or you can use a solid color DMC 722. Stitched on linen (10 threads per centimeter). Final measures: 16 x 142 centimeter.
