Our second needlepoint sample this month uses a variety of colourful stitch combinations to showcase Colour #137 and other complimentary colours in our collection.
This a bold and colourful pattern with a nice balance of soft pastels and loud colours. I love how little pops of magenta catch your eye!
There is no specific pattern but several stitches used include waffle stitch, scotch stitch and Milanese. The sample measures approximately 2 inches on an 18-count mono canvas
We’ve combined colour 137 with the following colours in size 5 Perle cotton
We added a bit of metallic in blue in the center waffle to give the pattern a little more pizzazz. A pink metallic or perhaps a lime green would work well also! You likely have the perfect metallic in your stash.
What do you think of the results? I hope that this has inspired you to play around and create different patterns of your own! I mentioned previously that Colour #137 is a great addition to any children’s themed project.
