Candles and Clubs cross stitch pattern was inspired by a vintage pattern, first published in Europe around 1915. We’ve freshened up the colours with a modern DMC palette and added a few backstitches for extra detail.
Repeating designs with limited colours are always relaxing to stitch, so it’s great for a TV weekend or holiday project where you don’t need to refer to the pattern every other stitch.
This is a cutaway cross stitch project that measures 26.7cm x 26.7cm (17,017 stitches) when completed on 14-count Aida cloth. We’ve also added 32 optional backstitches to emphases the raspberry red stitches inside the winter white. It requires 3 different DMC colours.
Please note: To help you manage your project we have included an extra chart in your download pack that has been specially formatted for the Pattern Keeper App. The PK chart works perfectly for the cross stitches, but does not recognise the 32 backstitches in the pattern.
