Size DIY gift chef cross stitch pattern.

• Illustration size: 50 x 56 stitches
• Grid size: 70 x 70 stitches
• Fabric: Use 7 x 7 inch AIDA 14 (18 x 18 cm) —> or easier: stitch double on AIDA 28
• It will fit nicely in a 6 inch embroidery hoop.
• If you want to frame your piece in a different way, we suggest to add a margin.

Skill Level

This pattern is of intermediate level. It does expect basic knowledge of the stitches used.

Stitches used:
• Backstitch line
• Cross stitch
• Half Cross stitch
• Quarter Cross stitch
• French Knot

The half cross stitch and french knot are a bit more tricky, but you can find great instructions online. As the pattern contains half and quarter cross stitches in the pattern, it is easier to work with Aida 28.

Completed Cross Stitch

If you like we can also frame the piece in an embroidery hoop or new/recycled photo frame. We also do custom orders, e.g. in case you like your family picture to be cross stitched.
