Strutting Rooster cross stitch pattern was inspired by the 1901 ink drawing ‘Rooster’ by Art Nouveau artist, Julie de Graag.
You’ll find the design very easy to stitch, and (even better) you’ll only need black thread to recreate the haughty rooster’s speckled feathers and textured plumage.
If you were born in the year of the Rooster, or just need to call in some confidence (and the energy to stand tall) — this quick cross stitch is definitely for you.
This is a cutaway cross stitch, so you’ll only be stitching the rooster. The finished piece measures (approximately) 14.2cm x 23.0cm when stitched on 14 count Aida (2,934 stitches).
Your download pack includes two different sized patterns in PDF format, plus an extra chart to use in the Pattern Keeper App.
Julie de Graag lived between 1877 and 1924 and painted in the original Art Nouveau style. We adore her minimalist style and everyday subject matter — pets, garden plants, and people of the village.
