Skill Level: Intermediate

This is one of our most popular designs we'veever published. Originally created for a Christmas advertisement in a Just CrossStitch magazine issue, we proudly present it here for your stitching pleasure.If you start now, you can have it finished for this year's holiday. (Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the chart.)

Materials needed:

  • one 2.5m skein of Kreinik Silk Mori® in these colors: 1117, 4203, 9034, 7086
  • one 5m skein of Kreinik Silk Mori® in these colors: 8077, 7134, 5055, 4206
  • 28-count natural linen, about an 18" x 13" piece (stitch count is 81h x 153w)
  • #24 Tapestry needle

Instructions:

This design is primarily stitched using the Cross Stitch, with Smyrna crosses forming the "Noel" and one band of Long-arm Cross stitch beneath the "Noel." Use two strands of Silk Mori for all stitches. Each square on the chart represents two fabric threads.

Tips: Separate strands of Silk Mori by removing the paper wrapper and loosening the slip knot holding the thread ends together.Cut a 15- to 18-inch length and remove one ply at a time, straightening the thread after removing each ply to avoid tangling. Let your needle hang frequently as you stitch so the the thread can relax. Lay your stitches carefully and neatly; make sure the two strands of each stitch are lying parallel to maximize the beautiful, unique lustre of silk thread.

Finishing ideas:

Finish as a large Christmas pillow using Kreinik Torsades for trim, or frame and display on an easel along with your holiday decorations.
