Don’t tell this feathered creature he’s ‘ratty’ or ‘like a bear’: though he might be on the cantankerous side of the mood spectrum, his heart is in the right place and he’s sure to protect your dwelling from any evil spirits being foolish enough to try and enter.

This design measures 79 crosses in both width height. Stitched over 2 threads on 32 count linen (or over 1 on 16ct Aida) it would measure approximately 5” by 5” (12.5 by 12.5cm). It has a total of 1408 crosses.

This pattern can be stitched on any fabric, but a nicely hand-dyed, slightly grotty-looking fabric combined with some very dark variegated floss would look fantastic I think.

When working with 2 pulled strands of this floss you can stitch approximately 1800 crosses with one hank. This means 1 skein (or any other floss measuring about 8 to 10 yards) should be sufficient to complete this project.
