As the name implies, Not Quite Whitework is a twist on traditional whitework samplers as of course it's not white, but white and pastel colours. There is very little cross stitch – just the alphabet and a few small areas of darning patterns. There are textured stitches, patterned stitches and pulled stitches, used as examples of different ways you can fill areas of fabric for other types of projects.

Floss for the model is from Dinky Dyes and can be found at your needlework shop.

Fabric for the model is from Needleworker's Delight and is available from most needlework shops.

Additional Northern Expressions Needlework designs can be found at Dinky Dyes, Hoffman Distributing or from needlework shops worldwide.


Stitch Count: 393w x 249h
Design Size: 19 ¾ x 12 ½ inches on 40 count fabric (20 stitches per inch)
22 x 14 inches on 36 count fabric (18 stitches per inch)
24 ½ x 15 ½ inches on 32 count fabric (16 stitches per inch)

The model was stitched on 36ct Zweigart Raw linen, because of the stitches used, Aida is not suitable.

Dinky Dyes Silk Floss

000 Natural OR DMC Blanc x 7 (*you may want to get 8, I used every bit of the 7 skeins)
003 Lavender Mist OR DMC 605 x1
204 Flesh OR DMC 967 x1
153 Egg Custard OR DMC 3078 x1
219 Pistachio OR DMC 955 x2
008 Mint Ice OR DMC 964 x1
010 Cloudy Sky OR DMC 800 x1
208 Hydrangea OR DMC 3747 x1
005 Mulberry Ice OR DMC 153 x1

This is not an exact conversion. The DMC is solid and the Dinky Dyes is overdyed. Conversions to several other colour schemes provided in the chart. Floss estimates are for 36-40ct fabric, if working on a lower count you will need additional Natural (10) and Pistachio (3).

Happy Stitching
