This Circuit Twist Blackwork Cross Stitch Pattern would be an ideal place to start if you haven’t tackled blackwork designs before.
As you can see, the Circuit Twist Blackwork Cross Stitch Pattern isn’t actually cross stitch at all, the design looks complicated but it’s very easy and just made of small straight stitches in four glowing colors, green, red, purple and blue.
It’s also ideal for a beginner because this is one of our smaller designs so it just measures 30 x 50 stitches on 16 count white Aida.
The great thing about this design is that it is quite quick to stitch and when you’ve made it once, you could use any colors from your needlework stash to create it again and again.
The Circuit Twist Blackwork Cross Stitch Pattern would make a great thank you card for a friend who has done you a favor, or it would be fantastic as a birthday card.
One way of making this design look really luxurious would be to use holographic or sparkly thread. We love either Gutermann or Glitter Superior threads which are made in Japan.
If you make the Circuit Twist Blackwork Cross Stitch Pattern with holographic thread you can use one thread and then knot it at the end so that you are using it double and then, when we’re making it, we run it lightly through a product called Thread Heaven, a thread conditioner and protectant.

If you then run your fingers down the thread the static helps to separate the two strands, making it less likely to knot when you are stitching it. The other tip is not to use too long a strand, it’s easier to stitch in slightly shorter lengths.
When you order our Circuit Twist Blackwork Cross Stitch Pattern you can either print out the chart from the order in color or you can keep it on your computer screen so that it’s easy to refer to while you are stitching.
