We love creating new designs and here’s our FlowerOval Blackwork cross stitch pattern where the flowers are bursting out of the design in four lovely colors.
Created on 16 count white Aida, this FlowerOval Blackwork cross stitch pattern measures just 60 x 70 stitches so it’s very delicate and will make a wonderful card or small picture for a friend or loved one.
The centre of the flower is an orange-red with dark pink and purple petals and then the leaves are a lovely shade of green.
Blackwork looks quite difficult to tackle but it’s really easy, it’s just tiny straight lines and the different colors make it easy to follow the pattern which you can download from our website.
The FlowerOval Blackwork cross stitch pattern is just one of our blackwork designs and if you like it, do take a look at some of the others. One of our favorites, again with a floral theme, is the Flowers Blooming pattern, in similar colors, so you could also make that one if you were thinking of framing your picture as one of a gift set.
If you enjoy making this FlowerOval Blackwork cross stitch pattern then you could do it again in other colors, or even splash out on holographic threads which sparkle under artificial light. We like to use Gutermann as they are a reliable make and if you use Thread Heaven, a product in a small square blue box, then that helps the thread to run more easily through your fabric.
Our FlowerOval Blackwork cross stitch pattern is quick to make
There are many blackwork designs on our website which are easy for the beginner but others which are more challenging for the experienced stitcher.
If you’re someone who stitches regularly then you should be able to complete this design in about four hours if you can get some quiet time away from interruptions.
It might take you a little longer if you are a beginner but we’ve chosen 16 count Aida which makes it easy to see where to place the needle.
