Reviews From Customers Who Purchased This Item
from United States on 07/29/2020 - Beautiful piece, awful pattern This piece will probably work up really nice but if you are looking into this designer, BE WARNED the pattern is pretty much awful.
1. Symbols are WAY too small, and some are in color. So in order to get a "working copy," you will have to enlarge probably by at least 150-175% and in addition, your copy will need to be a color copy. Black and white copy will not do the trick.
2. Backstitching is marked right on the same pattern, and so there are several places where you can't tell what cross-stitch color it is, because the marks for the backstitching obscure / make it unreadable.
3. Pattern calls for Kreinik Braid, both #4 and #8 ... and if you are using 16/32 count to stitch, that size is going to be way too big. I would suggest a Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure braid substitution.
All in all, I feel like I paid ~$20.00 for a pattern that I will never stitch. I haven't thrown the pattern away yet, because I'm still deciding. But probably I'm just going to throw the pattern away. There are so many other designers that have easy/understandable/read-able patterns which are a joy to stitch that I'm probably not going to waste time stitching a project where the pattern is so irritating.
