ARE YOU LOOKING FOR EASY CROSS-STITCH DESIGNS TO ADD TO YOUR HOLIDAY DECOR?  MIDNIGHT CLEAR ADDS A TOUCH OF ELEGANCE TO ANY SPACE!

I love a simple cross-stitch pattern that fits nicely into a hoop for display and Midnight Clear fits the bill.  This pattern is easy enough for beginners but takes you a little further in your skills with back-stitching and knots.

Let’s take a closer look at Midnight Clear!

 

 

About the Midnight Clear Cross Stitch Pattern

  • Skill Level: Beginner – Intermediate
  • Finished Design Size: This pattern measures 4.6″ x 4.6″ (11.6 x 11.6 cm) unframed when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth
  • Stitches Used: full cross-stitch, back-stitch, knots

This easy pattern is a wonderful project for beginner stitchers.  If you aren’t a fan of knots, you can easily replace the knots with full cross-stitches.
