Item details

(This listing is for a downloadable cross stitch chart in PDF format, which you will need to download and print prior to use. It is not for a finished project of any type, nor does it include any of the other supplies - such as fabric, floss, and needle – that you will need to stitch the design.)

Inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s immortal literary classic, this simple yet striking design features a large, elegant “Scarlet Letter” motif accented by the word “Hester” in traditional sampler-style lettering.

Stitched entirely in full cross stitch (with no partial stitches) and backstitch with either Gentle Art Sampler Threads or DMC floss, it measures just over three-and-a-quarter inches wide by four-and-a-quarter stitches wide – great for finishing as a pincushion or small framed piece – and would make a wonderful addition to your décor or a thoughtful gift for a special literature lover.

The color images above show how the design would look – on both Natural/Raw and White Belfast linen – using the fabric and floss specified in the pattern. You will receive color keys for both variations with your pattern.

Your chart will be sent via e-mail in PDF format within 48 hours of your purchase.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Have a wonderful day, and happy stitching!
