So even if you’re a beginner at blackwork, the ZigZag Blackwork Cross Stitch Pattern should be well within your capabilities so do give it a go. The design is on 16 count white Aida and uses just three colors. We’ve chosen blue and two shades of purple which make the geometric design stand out but you could choose colors in other shades if you want to match it to a particular decor.
The ZigZag Blackwork Cross Stitch Pattern measures just 70 x 70 stitches so it’s not going to take you long to do.
This is just one of our blackwork range of designs so do take a look at the others, once you’ve made one design we are sure you’ll want to make many others.
Blackwork is a very easy type of needlework to do because it is just tiny straight stitches in one strand of DMC thread. Looked at from a distance the small straight lines create curves and shapes on the fabric.

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.
