Grasshoppers and crickets have long been a symbol of abundance and luck, they were often included in needlework and cross stitch samplers.
Our grasshopper icon cross stitch was found in an old book of cross stitch patterns, originally published in Europe around 1596. Rather than let these fabulous hand-drawn patterns disappear we have replicated some of them for you to stitch.
