Grasshopper Cross Stitch Pattern

$8.02 USD

Vintage Art Nouveau

Cross stitch this stunning grasshopper hiding in the grass.

The project maximises the parrot green tones in the DMC thread palette. Gorgeous.



Grasshopper cross stitch pattern was inspired by the 1918 print ‘Sprinkhaan’ by Dutch painter  Julie de Graag. The original design was printed in black from a woodblock and the green tones were made by hand using different shades of green chalk.

We love how the artist has given us prime viewing of a small grasshopper hidden in the long grass — and the different shades of green translated perfectly to the parrot greens of the DMC palette.

The Project

Grasshopper cross stitch pattern measures 41.9 x 36.3 cm when stitched on 14 count Aida cloth. It’s a full coverage project and quite tricky. We’ve splashed confetti through the green background to retain the vintage appeal of the piece, but there are still blocks of full colour.

The Artist

Julie de Graag lived between 1877 and 1924 and painted in the Art Nouveau style. Her paintings and drawings focused on everyday subjects like domestic pets, farm animals, insects and spiders — as well as leaves, flowers and people of the village.

Her work was defined by thick outlines and a minimalist colour palette (very often just black and white). Browse the store for more Art Nouveau designs by Julie de Graag.
