(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.)
Offering a visual representation of the old adage "the pen is mightier than the sword," this original cross stitch design celebrates the power of language with vintage-inspired pen and sword motifs and a simple mathematical symbol accented with a pair of understated linear borders.
Stitched in shades of gray, gold, black, and red, it measures 56 stitches wide by 84 stitches high (which works out to four inches wide by six inches high on 28-count linen, stitched over two).
If you prefer linen to Aida, you could easily stitch this design on 14-count antique white, cream, or oatmeal Aida (over one) for a similar effect and finished size.
However you choose to stitch it, this design would make a great addition to your home, office, or classroom decor or a perfect gift for a special teacher or writer.
The color images above show how the design would look – on antique white, cream, and natural/raw linen – using the fabric and floss specified in the pattern.
