My angel pattern for this year is made with orange and copper threads. As you can see on the photo, I’ve placed some of the angels close to the edge of the tablecloth (linen, 12 threads pr. cm., size about 47 x 47 cm.).
m = DMC E301 (copper thread).
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.
