Cross Stitch pattern for Three Ships - easy, quick and nautically inspired. Perfect for linens, pillows or to frame. This design was inspired by a 1903 children’s counting book called ‘First Days in Number.’
This pattern is well suited to either Aida or Evenweave. If you are using 14 count Aida or 28 count evenweave, the finished size will be approximately 6 x 10 inches. If you use 8 count waste canvas (for a pillow, for example) then the design will be 10 x 17.5 inches.
The name for the pattern comes from the Christmas carol:
"I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day in the morning"
