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: we’ve included the original artist insignia (with date) in the charts, but this can be easily removed if you dont like it.
This super cool design was charted for black Aida cloth and plain white thread. The finished piece is quite large, measuring 40.5cm x 58.1cm when stitched on 14 count Aida — but you’ll only be completely 19,300 stitches. So it’s quite manageable.
Your download pack includes an extra chart that has been formatted for the Pattern Keeper App. We suggest using this fantastic application to manage your project.
