Color numbers listed are for 6 strand DMC embroidery floss and are suggestions only.

Stitch count is 23 high.

Use one strand of 987 green for elongated cross stitches and back stitches.

The "star" element makes an attractive repeat border pattern when used alone. Each "star" can be separated by one or more small "flowers" found in the 3-thread edging. (When designing your own border arrangement, using the small flowers gives more flexibility in arriving at a desired stitch count). Consider using beads, metallics or novelty threads in combination with a colored fabric for a different effect.
