Digital Download Chart: Winter Cardinal Sampler Cross Stitch Pattern
What a stunning winter themed sampler!
The cardinal is one of my favorite birds. I am fortunate to see them quite often in my backyard in central Maryland. I wanted to combine my love for cardinals, alphabets, and traditional wool needlework into one fun winter counted cross stitch sampler.
The digital download of the counted cross stitch sampler includes:
- 8 Page PDF file formatted for 8.5 x 11 inch paper
- Cover page and color key
- Color chart with symbols (3 pages)
- Black and white chart (3 pages)
The model is stitched on a 9 x 13 inch piece of 32 count Wichelt Riviera Olive green linen with one strand of Wonderfil Ellana thread over two linen strands. This counted cross stitch sampler uses a 12 weight two-ply Merino wool and acrylic blend thread. The spool cards are an exclusive feature created just for Ardith Design by Wonderfil Threads. Try out this new thread today and stitch up this lovely winter sampler. If you prefer to stitch with DMC six-stranded cotton embroidery floss or Sulky's Filaine acrylic 12 weight thread, I have provided a color conversion for you to reference.
