Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with this "Lucky" cross stitch small!
This pattern features the word "Lucky" and includes a rainbow leading to a pot of gold on a hill. The pattern also includes a shamrock, a heart, and a row of alternating greens embellished with gold to help lure in those leprechauns!
As stitched, the pattern uses red, orange, yellow, greens, blue, purple, gray, black and gold.
Although this pattern suggests regular DMC threads, DMC Light Effects Gold, and Weeks Dye Works threads, it includes DMC-only alternatives as well. It is stitched entirely with whole stitches. The model is stitched over 2 on 28ct. Antique White Jobelan using 2 ply thread. The stitch count is 52w x 35h and measures approximately 3.5"w x 2.5"h when stitched on 28 count/equivalent. A WORD ON STITCHING WITH DMC LIGHT EFFECTS: DMC Light Effects thread is a metallic and can be pretty tricky to work with. If you don't want to mess with it, just substitute the yellow from the rainbow. If you would like to give it a go, make sure you work with small segments; 12 inches or so at a time is a good starting place. Thread conditioner helps. Expect to have waste. It will fray!
One more time, here it is--Happy Stitching!
