Bats and the Full Moon cross stitch pattern is a replica of a 1910 woodblock print by Japanese artist Ohara Koson. Bats have powerful energy and are a universal symbol of speed, acute sensory perception, and courage in the dark. Fantastic for your home or office wallspace!
This is a large, full coverage cross stitch that measures 36.3 x 68.9 cm when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth (200 x 380 grid size). You’ll need 21 different DMC colours and will complete the 76,000 cross stitches.
If you’re up for a big project, we think you’ll love stitching the luminous moon and darkened silhouettes of the bats and bamboo foliage. It’s quite stunning.
PLEASE NOTE: to make things easier, we’ve included an extra chart that has been specially formatted for Pattern Keeper in your download pack.
Ohara Koson was a Japanese Shin-hanga artist who lived from 1877-1945. We adore his bird and nature paintings and have had lots of fun charting them into counted cross stitch patterns. Look for more Koson Cross Stitch in-store.
