HOW TO JOIN OUR STITCH-ALONG

Cross Stitcher - - Cross Stitcher -

STITCH-ALONGS CAN take many dif­fer­ent forms – in our case we’re un­veil­ing a new chart in each is­sue be­tween Jan­uary and De­cem­ber, with a bor­der de­sign in our Sum­mer is­sue. As you add to your de­sign you’ll start to see your sam­pler take shape!

To join our mys­tery stitch you will need a 100x20cm (39½x8in) piece of Zweigart Blue 14 count aida, ref: 3706/503, to com­plete the de­sign. The fin­ished size will be 492 high x 59 wide plus the bor­der edge, which gives you a fin­ished size of 90x11.5cm (35½x4½in). The twelve rec­tan­gu­lar de­signs, one for each month of the year, will all be the same size. You’ll be stitch­ing them in one col­umn, work­ing down the fab­ric, leav­ing one blank square be­tween each month.

So that you can buy just a me­tre of fab­ric for this sam­pler, you will only have only 5cm (2in) above and below the fin­ished de­sign, so you should count care­fully be­fore you be­gin stitch­ing.

Post your progress on our Face­book page at www.face­book.com/CrossStitcherMag or you can email us at crossstitcher@den­nis.co.uk with your stitch-along pho­tos and we will add them to our SAL Pin­ter­est board.
