Shades of Purple is the last in a series of twelve shaded designs featuring bands and motifs shaped into geometric patterns.

Floss used in the model is from Fiberlicious and can be purchased from their website.

Fabric used in the model is from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie and can be purchased from their website or your local needlework shop.

Additional Northern Expressions Needlework Designs can be found at Dinky Dyes, Hoffman Distributing, or can be ordered through your favourite shop.

Model (and last minute colour corrections!) wonderfully and rapidly stitched by Esther Hung.

Stitch Count: 249w x 249h
Design Size: 12 ½ x 12 ½ inches on 40 count fabric over 2 (20ct fabric over 1)
14 x 14 inches on 36 count fabric over 2 (18ct fabric over 1)
15 ¾ x 15 ¾ inches on 32 count fabric over 2 (16ct fabric over 1)
18 x 18 inches on 28 count fabric over 2 (14ct fabric over 1)

Fabric used for the model is 40ct Apple Blossom from Stephanie. Because this design uses full cross stitches only, you can use any type of fabric you like.

Floss Used:

11656 Stitches - Fiberlicious Purple Rain x2 skeins OR Dinky Dyes Orchid x2 skeins OR DMC 550 x2 skeins
10644 Stitches - Fiberlicious Spicy Plum x2 skeins OR Dinky Dyes Sugar Plum x 2 skeins OR DMC 552 x2 skeins
10508 Stitches - Fiberlicious Bougainvillea x2 skeins OR Dinky Dyes Heath x 2 skeins or DMC 554 x 2 skeins

* This is not an exact conversion, the DMC are of course solid rather than overdyed, but it's fairly close.

Floss estimates are for 40 count fabric using one strand of floss for stitching over two. If you are using a lower count of fabric or multiple strands of floss you will need to adjust these amounts.

Happy Stitching!

    Beautiful design in the "Shades of ____ " collection! I believe this is the final chart in this particular Northern Expressions series. Nicole fills orders promptly and her directions and step by step stitch guides (for charts with specialty stitches) are EXCEPTIONAL! A++++
