Our Two Owls cross stitch pattern was inspired by a 1920s woodcut by Dutch painter and graphic artist Julie de Graag. It’s a minimalist design and translates perfectly to counted cross stitch.
We adore the unique personalities of the owls — the bottom owl is quite menacing, but the top owl has a much softer appearance . Plus the project is large enough to capture the unique artist insignia.
PLEASE NOTE: The insignia is an important element of the design and if removed creates an awkward amount of black space in the bottom right-hand corner (as well as a weird looking border). We suggest you leave it in.\
This super cool design was charted for 14 count black Aida cloth and plain white thread. It’s quite large, measuring 243.4 x 60.8cm but the black Aida greatly reduces the stitching area.
Your download pack includes an extra chart that has been formatted for Pattern Keeper App. We suggest using this fantastic application to manage your project.
