Materials and Tools
This pattern requires the following materials.
Fabric: This pattern was designed using 14-count Aida as the fabric. You can choose any colour you like, but white or a very light fabric would be best to ensure there is no colour showing through under the white threads.
Threads: DMC is my absolutely go-to for floss, but of course, you can choose the brand you love most. There are a number of online tools that will convert the numbers to the brand of your choice.
- DMC BLANC – White
- DMC 310 – Black
- DMC 604 – Cranberry light
- DMC 818 – Baby Pink
- DMC 3689 – Mauve light
- DMC 972 – Canary deep
A note about the threads in this pattern. You can choose NOT to use the white thread if you use a white Aida cloth. You could even change the colour of the scarf and hat! If that sounds good to you, be sure to keep an eye out for Poppy’s brother Percy, coming soon!
