This sweet little pattern stitches up so quickly. It features the word "JOY" surrounded by a hat, mittens, and ice skates.
As stitched, this design uses shades of red, beige, and gray. I finished mine as a flat, but it is sized just right to be an ornament, to fit on a tiered tray, or to be part of a dough bowl display.
PATTERN DETAILS: The model was stitched on 28 ct. White Monaco using 2 ply thread. The design uses whole stitches only. The stitch count is 67w x 35h and the finished design measures approximately 4 1/2"w x 2 3/8"h when stitched on that fabric. I chose an overdyed thread from Weeks Dye Works for the red because I wanted to give the hat and mittens some texture--just like a knit hat and mittens would have. (Bonus: Weeks Dye Works has shifted to using colorfast dyes! Win!) The other suggested floss colors are from DMC.
Hope you enjoy!
