i designed this pattern a while back, and thought people might like to have a bash at it.
i'm assuming people actually know the basics of cross stitch, but if you are a beginner, the following links are helpful for getting started:http://www.cross-stitch-centre.co.uk/acatalog/tutorial.htmlhttp://www.metacafe.com/watch/785979/cross_stitch_in_5_minutes/
this pattern is easy for beginners because it only uses one colour and there isn't a lot of stopping and starting. it takes a couple of hours (but this will vary depending on experience and skill level).
i used DMC floss in the colour "991", which i think is a nice rich teal, but there is nothing stopping you from using another teal. you could even leave out the words and make it a brown deer or a pink or a red or a green deer!
here is the chart:
(obviously the squares are cross stitches and the lines are back stitches.)
i hope you like it! i'd love to see photos if you make it
p.s. this is my first post here on craftster. please let me know if there is anything i should change!
