If you’d like to stitch something a bit more intricate then this 4 x 4 inch 16 count Aida Blackwork is the perfect time filler or holiday project when you have an hour or so and just need something to stitch.
It’s actually simple to make because it’s just straight lines, but when it’s finished you’d never guess that because all the stitches fit together in an intricate design of scrolls and stars.
You can download all our Blackwork cross stitch patterns through our subscription service (30 day trial included) and at the same time support a young cross stitch designer.
Blackwork can look amazing when designed in your own colour choices to create amazing 3D effects. Don’t just settle for black, try making the stars in one colour and the scrolls in another to truly personalise it. Red and green would make a festive gift.
Once you’ve made it you can either put it into a card, picture, or just keep it for yourself.
If you enjoy blackwork, and it’s really simple to do but looks very intricate and effective, then have a look at our other designs which include Love Hearts, and Nothing But Flowers, Trio Cube, Blackwork The Cube, Techweb and Valentine Hearts.
