Dare you take on the Black and Red CrissCross pattern? It’s going to be a real mind bending challenge!

Description

If you’re a fan of StitchMe Gifts’ geometric designs, then our Black and Red CrissCross blackwork pattern is just for you.

Created on 16 count white Aida, it uses just two colors, black and red, to complete the design over 70 x 70 stitches.

Blackwork looks complicated but it really isn’t. The stitches are just small straight lines and the contrasting colors bring the pattern to life.

Our Black and Red CrissCross blackwork pattern is just one of our blackwork range. This would look fantastic in a square frame to enhance the geometric design and you don’t have to make it in black and red either. It would look just as good completely stitched in black or you could choose other colors if you are making this design for yourself or to match a friend’s home decor.

In many ways, blackwork is versatile and can represent many different things. For instance, does this picture represent red roses, the stitching does look like flowers surrounded by black leaves? Or is it just a geometric design?

If you’d like to add a touch of glamour to your work of art you could use holographic or metallic thread. Designs made like this look fantastic under artificial light. You can buy this thread from most good needlework shops, or on the internet.

Make our Black and Red CrissCross blackwork pattern into a card

As our Black and Red CrissCross blackwork pattern is just 70 x 70 stitches, you could make it up into a card or party invitation. Take a look in your local craft shop and you’re sure to find an aperture card which will fit the bill.

We have a large range of other blackwork designs, one of the most popular is the Flower Garden, which has a mixture of cross stitch and blackwork in many fabulous colors.
