Originally designed by William Morris in 1866, this pomegranate needlepoint kit has had a colorful update.
- The design measures 8" x 8" and is color-printed onto 12 holes to the inch needlepoint canvas.
- This Victorian Cross Stitch needlepoint kit comes with Planet Earth merino wool yarns which are used single-ply (just as they come) and are soft, smooth, and lovely to stitch with.
- If you have not tried the Victorian Cross Stitch before we have provided comprehensive instructions. This is such a relaxing stitch as it is worked on top of the canvas like you are darning—the perfect needlework project to relax with.
- You do not need stretcher bars (or any type of frame) to stitch this project. The canvas is worked "in hand" which makes the experience even more tactile and delicious!
- Finishing options: We love this iconic William Morris Fruit design in a frame. The contemporary color scheme we have chosen for this adaptation means it suits both a modern and more traditional décor. You could also inset the canvas into a pillow, or stitch it to a tote bag.
- The Victorian Cross Stitch creates a tapestry that is strong and robust. It has a rich texture and you will love watching the fabric unfold beneath your needle.
SKILL LEVEL: Suitable for a beginner, but if you have never stitched before you might want to start with our William Morris Rabbit needlepoint kit.
The perfect companion for car journeys, TV stitching, waiting rooms...
Can I use a regular tent stitch (Continental or Basketweave) on this kit instead of the Victorian Cross Stitch?
Yes, you can. Just be aware that the canvas is an interlock canvas so if you are using a Basketweave stitch you won't have "steps" and "poles" to guide you. We recommend using a Basketweave stitch if you are going to stitch this design in a tent stitch because of the thicker coverage it will give the canvas.
